1. Mentorship Program
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.

2. Tea & Cookies!!

We're back to cure some of your Monday blues next week! Come by the MUGS Lounge next Monday at 11:00am to enjoy a hot MUG (get it?) of tea and some cookies, to start your week off right. 

Meet others in the faculty, enjoy our leather(ish?) couches, and enjoy some free tea :)



3. Lockers

Last call for lockers next week! Next monday, from 10 - 11 your U3 exec Gal will be in the MUGS lounge to sign you up for your locker (if you don't already have one).


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
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!



6. Cool Thing of the Week
Denmark's done it again with floating technology. Bjarke Ingels' architecture firm has built new affordable and floating student housing out
of shipping containers in Copenhagen. Would make
for great parties, and floating away from your responsibilities. Click on the picture to find out more ^



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.


And there we have it. 

Hope you all have an amazing weekend, and to see you next monday for some cookies and tea at the MUGS lounge :)
