Tweet of the Week! (HSA_McGill)
Hello everyone! How are you all holding up ? I hope midterms are not driving you (too) crazy. Last week’s roundtable has been a success and we would like to thank everyone who came, whether it was for the free candy or the pure love of knowledge Prof Sharp and Fitzpatrick shared with us with such passion.
If you are one of those many lost souls mourning their absence at the HSA’s events, don’t worry because we will host another of our famous thematic parties very soon. Stay tuned!
In the meantime, there are several interesting talks around campus such as the one organized by the McGill Medievalists. Because study breaks are always good and because there’s a life waiting outside of McLennan for you. I promise.
Give all you’ve got and have a FANTASTIC week just before the (hopefully no-pants) SPRING BREAK!
