MUGS LISTERV 🌟 We are recruiting! 

View this email in your browser

Hello fellow geograpghers,

Welcome back to another year in McGill Geography. We hope you had a fun, safe, relaxing and rejuvenating summer break. This is undoubtedly, 100% going to be a MUGS-tastic school year. Add/drop shenanigans are officially over and all of our classes are (hopefully) sorted out. Now we have gotten into our groove, re-acquainted ourselves with the GIC and are starting to learn some cool stuff.  So let's talk MUGS... Our MUGS team this year is almost entirely new and our new execs are bringing along with them some great experience and ideas for this school year. For the purposes of the listerv we are going to be changing things up a bit. Instead of a weekly listerv, we will be giving you bi-monthly updates. 

This year we hope to help members of this department make friends, enjoy their time at McGill, and feel supported by their peers.. oh and organize some awesome events! We encourage you to reach out to our Facebook Page or email us with any questions, concerns or ideas at mcgillgeography@gmail.com.

Sincerely,
your MUGS team
