Hey there Geographers! Only five more days till reading break! I'm super pumped, and I'm sure you are too. Any plans? The Oscars last night were fun; maybe you can use this precious free time to watch all the nominated movies! Or you may be on the beach. Whatever works.

Geography toques

We are still selling geography toques! I'm sure you've seen your fellow geographers sporting those stylish hats, and they're just as practical as they are cool. Speak to any MUGS member to get yours today!

Geography and Environment are going out to a sugar shack! If you've never been to a traditional cabane au sucre, this is a perfect opportunity to participate in an integral part of Quebec culture. If you have, then you know how much fun it is! We will be selling tickets the week after reading week. Sugar shack trip will be the evening of Friday, March 15th.

Call for Abstracts for Student Conference

The 2013 McGill Sustainability Symposium will take place on March 14th. The conference features guest speakers, a poster session, presentations of student work, and a "world-cafe" round table discussion. We will be joined this year by Drs. David Wolfe (Cornell) and Monica Mulrennan (Concordia). This is an excellent opportunity to present some work at a conference, especially if you are an undergraduate student considering going to grad school! They accept any abstracts that are in any way related to sustainability. Feel free to present a group project from a class, thesis work, or research you may be doing with a professor.
