Events in October

Hi everyone!

We hope September has treated you well. Now that we’re “falling” deeper into October, here are some events EASSU will be hosting within the next few weeks that you’ll for sure want to keep an eye out for:

Come celebrate Halloween early with us on October 15th in the Purple Lounge at Robarts Library! We’ll be viewing something scarier than that Economics midterm you wrote earlier today. Refreshments will be provided.


EASSU and the Korea Club have joined forces once again to present to you a Hangeul Calligraphy Workshop seminar led by guest calligrapher, Byong Ok Lee, head director of the Gasan Calligraphy Academy. Held in the Purple Lounge from 1pm-3pm on October 28th, anyone interested in calligraphy and writing systems is welcome to join!

Stay tuned for more events coming up this semester.

Where Now?: East Asian Studies Graduate Studies Workshop

Wednesday, 13th January 2010
Time: 12:00pm
Location: Purple Lounge, 14th Floor, Robarts Library

Are you at a crossroads in terms of where to go next? Interested in a postgraduate degree in East Asian Studies?
Some very generous graduate students have agreed to share with undergraduate students their experiences as well as address any questions that you may have. Don’t miss out, as we go through the application process and give YOU a chance to ask the specific questions you have been wondering about! Professor Thomas Keirstead will also be in attendance and will help share his insights and advice regarding the East Asian Studies graduate program at the University of Toronto. Discuss career prospects, the program, the student life and more! Refreshments will be served.
