February already! I know that midterms and papers are starting to get heavy, but remember that the term will be over before you know it so you should make the best of your time here. Take solace from the cold in a cozy cafe or a museum exhibit, or check out the Arts Peer-to-Peer Research Symposium happening this week (details below). And of course, take a moment to check out my February 4th Council Report.
Exciting current events in my portfolio:
Arts Peer-to-Peer Research Symposium
I’m really looking forward to this series of events, which runs February 3, 4, 5 & 9. Come out and hear Arts undergraduate students talk about their research projects and experiences, ranging from summer trips to European archives to psychology experiments and studies of current events. Join in the peer-to-peer discourse and learn something new! The full schedule of talks is available here.
AUS Reading Groups
This term, we are excited to present several AUS-sponsored Reading Groups led by undergraduate students in the Faculty of Arts. These not-for-credit discussion groups are a space for continued academic exploration and investigation outside of the classroom, in areas that students might not otherwise have the opportunity to study. They are open to all undergraduate students. You can check out the confirmed topics here.
