EHMAGAWD Campus just flooded and everyone is running around not knowing what to do with themselves! What a mess. But seriously I hope everyone got home safe with minimal damage to your personal property.

Skating at Parc Lafontaine
We're going skating this Sunday! Come to Parc Lafontaine at 5pm on February 3rd where you can rent skates or bring your own. We'll meet on the bridge over the lake but if you come a bit late just meet us on the ice. We will go to Stephanie's for hot chocolate afterward!

We're still taking people for assassins until Friday, when all players will receive their first target. Email your name to IT IS NOT ENOUGH TO CLICK 'ATTENDING' ON THE FACEBOOK GROUP.

Cool Thing of the Week
Our dear friend Courtney sent a cool thing that maps clean air in Asia. You can see which major cities have good or poor air quality, and you can even style your nose hair! (Very fun)

Have a fabulous week, stay dry and safe!

Much love,
