Instagram account imagines Drake as U of T student

Instagram account superimposes the Toronto rapper into everyday student life.

Started from the bottom, now he's here

Drake has been seen around the University of Toronto Scarborough campus a lot lately, according to one parody Instagram account.

The account "uoftdrizzy" shows the rapper photoshopped into various campus scenes — from the library to the lunch line — as though he were a real student at U of T.

University of Toronto students are not quite as privileged as their Ryerson counterparts when it comes to real-life visits from the Toronto rapper, but at least now they can pretend. 

Here he is at the library.

Waiting for the bus.

On strike.

Buying a drink at Starbucks.

Working at Tim Hortons.

And of course, staying up late studying.

The photoshopping is certainly questionable, but it does seem like the average school day would be a lot more interesting if Drake were hanging around.
