Association of Renaissance Students

The Association of Renaissance Students of Victoria University, in the University of Toronto, is an undergraduate student group founded in 2004 to represent and promote Renaissance Studies across campus. The ARS promotes the collaboration of students from a variety of disciplines who share a common interest in the Renaissance period through academic lectures, socials events and a student academic journal, Virtù and Fortuna.

In the 2014-2015 academic year, the executive team consists of Sabrina La Mantia, the president of the ARS, Jonathan Weigand, the vice-president of the ARS, as well as Shaun Midanik, the Editor-in-chief of the journal. The ARS also works in conjunction with Angela Zhang, liaison to The Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies (CRRS).
