Winter Semester 2014: Let’s get back to business …

Hey y’all,

If it seems like it’s been a bit quiet around here in the last few months, your observation would in fact be correct. What with all of our fall semester events coming to a close, final exams looming, and even more work to be done for this year (2014), November and December were a bit of struggle when it came to updating the blog! If you follow us on Twitter and Facebook you would know we have been a bit more active in those spheres, but now is as good a time as any to get back into the swing of things here. With that brief introduction (or excuse?), here is a running list of events we are looking forward to in the next few months here at Guelph.

If you have any questions about any of these events, or if you would like to get involved with us, don’t hesitate to drop us a line at

We hope to see you around!
