SSMUfest night 1: Winter Activities Night!
*TUESDAY, January 29th*, from 4:30pm-8:30pm in the entire SSMU Building!
Date changed due to flooding — clubs, see cslistserv.tumblr.com for updated information!
Your Students’ Society oversees over 300 student groups you can get involved in! But the Activities Night kickoff to the “SSMUfest” week of workshops and mixers will be different from the Activities Night in September; while the cafeteria and ballroom will be full of tables of groups seeking new members and offering services to students, there will also be performances and other activities to check out — and even food! (*workshops cancelled due to room booking conflicts/the date change, and there will no longer be a table or performances in Gerts.)
