Confused about life after undergrad? Need to learn about your post undergrad options? 

If these are your thoughts, you should apply for a mentor!

This program, is a student led Geography Graduate-Undergraduate mentoring program that can help plan your successful future. We pair Geography undergrads (i.e. you) and pair them with a graduate Geography or Urban Planning student mentors who have recently endured
the post-undergrad world themselves,
and can share their wisdom with you!

Applications are due October 6th, and you can sign up to be a mentee here

Any further questions can be answered on our website, or feel free to email us.

4. Students in Mind Mental Health Conference


Mental health is an important issue here at McGill, and MUGS is no different! I'm posting the blurb sent to us by the Students in Mind group.

Students in Mind is an annual student mental health conference at McGill University that engages students in conversation regarding mental health and mental illness. In 2013, it was found that 1 in 5 McGill students were either diagnosed or treated for a mental health-related issue, making it a relevant topic of conversation on campus. The SiM conference explores issues that have led to the stigmatization of mental illness and barriers that have prevented open communication.

To register for the event on October 1st and 2nd in the SSMU building, register here

5. McGill Innovation Week

https://gallery.mailchimp.com/c1711d5c3a8fc69343847d69b/images/6b2d0ced-1325-4005-9385-fc9f14200533.png
Any Inovative Geographers here? If so, McGill Innovation Week (MIW) is coming up, and would like you to get involved. Check out the blurb they've sent me below, and if this sounds like something you would be interested in joining, contact the wonderful Tony Mistak for more information. 

MIW is a week long series of events about all things innovation. This year the week will go from November 13th to the 19th. At this point in time, we are looking for involved students and student groups who are knowledgeable about innovation in their respective disciplines to design and execute engaging events for other students. In the past, events have included workshops, discussions, panels, and case studies examining topics such as intellectual property, geometric thinking, storytelling, and sustainable urban planning. We are always looking for novel and creative events and subjects, and thus are welcoming discussion of any ideas students would like to put forth!

7. Mildly Interesting Map of the Week


Mild is a vast understatement this week's map. This amazing interactive web map of campus made by Geography's very own Ian Tattersfield. Mess around with it, find all those long fabled buildings you've heard about though never seen, and tell your friends! to access the map, click here.

Intro to ArcGIS Workshop!

Intro to ArcGIS Workshop! 

Hello! 
Want to get the gis(t) of the magical/employable world of ArcMap and GIS? As a geographer, I feel everyone needs to know a little about this powerful tool, and what better way than through a FREE Introductory workshop this Friday from 3pm - 5pm at the GIC.
The workshop is aimed towards people starting (or thinking of starting) to use GIS, and are not familiar with the daunting software, that is ArcMap. This is open to 35 - 40 students, and if you're all very keen geographers, there may be other installments over the next 2 weeks.

So come one, come all to this great learning opportunity! 

Reserve your spots for before this Wednesday in the following link: http://gic.geog.mcgill.ca/events/2016-09-23/

We hope to see you there!

5. Mildly Interesting Map of the Week


So someone with a lot of time on their hands mapped out the U.S. by only using the 8 million miles of dirt trails, roads, and highways on good ol' QGIS. ...Also it looks pretty.
