Good morning geographers! I hope you all were on campus to see the young 'uns at open house on Sunday afternoon, they were so cute! You also had the opportunity to see some of your fabulous MUGS exec tabling at the science faculty event there. There are some spooky events happening this week, so stay tuned!

Pumpkin chili pumpkin pie feast time!

On Wednesday, Octover 30th, from 1-2 pm, there will be vegetarian chili in the MUGS lounge (BH 305)! We will also have fun activities such as pumpkin carving! We will be selling GEOGRAPHY TOQUES for $15 so bring ca$h.


Our annual crawl is coming up on Friday, November 15th. If you have an apartment and want to host one of the stops on the crawl, please send an email to! You will receive a free ticket to the apartment crawl and free drinks for the night. (We are aiming for the Ghetto/Plateau/Mile End area, sorry West-of-Campus folks!)


The next GeoSpectives is Monday, November 4, and will be of particular interest to students curious about health geography and environmental analysis.

As usual, the talk will be in Burnside 426 at 4 PM.

Celebrate Halloween this year with Engineers Without Borders and Camino!

Engineers Without Borders and Camino are offering a great way to stock up on chocolate for the Halloween season and promote Fair Trade (at a student friendly price). You can find more information about specific products and place your order here: Orders are accepted before October 31st and you'll receive an email with information on where you can pick up your chocolate.

Fair Trade is a different way of doing business. It's about making principles of fairness and decency mean something in the marketplace. It seeks to ensure the farmers and artisans behind fair trade products get a better deal. Most often this is understood to mean better prices for producers, but it often means longer-term and more meaningful trading relationships as well.

Ryerson Master of Planning Open House

On November 6th, the Ryerson University Master of Planning Program is hosting an Open House event right there in Toronto! Super convenient, right? Anyway, if you happen to be in Toronto next week or know that there will be information there that you simply CAN'T gather from browsing your website, please consult the attached document.

World Bank Development Report Launch

For the first time in Canada, the World Bank is doing a report launch! Check out the facebook event on this page:

Cool Thing of the Week

Here's a video of a Texas comedian with cerebral palsy, Zach Anner, (you may remember him from Oprah in 2010, maybe not) answer questions with a religious Jew about faith! I haven't watched the video yet but I'm sure it's hilarious. I LOVE WACKY PEOPLE.

And here is a 4-year old geography expert. I LOVE WACKY KIDS.

Have a fantastic week everyone and I hope to see you at Pumpkin Chili Pie Time!
