There’s two Coffee socials (one later today!), an epic Laser Tag event in (10 days) and our Ghastliest Halloween Party Ever!! Not to mention Pro Football at the beginning of November! May the good times get better!

Out & About
The Institute of Race, Gender, Sexuality and Social Justice at UBC has some interesting programing happening this month. Check out their Calendar.
Final Call to graduate students in the sciences/engineering. Women in Engineering Wants You! The organization works to foster collaboration and build a community for women in that “non-traditional” field. Community does not happen by itself.
Make a plan already! Because friends don’t let friends hang out in the lab/library/office all day.
– Ngwatilo: for your GSS.
