April 5-8, 2018


The forecast for the weekend is cool (highs around -2) and cold at night, with the possibility of some flurries. Also apparently there has been winds from the north the past couple of days and so it feels even colder. So DRESS WARMLY, don't worry about overdressing! You can always take layers off. Make sure you have toques and gloves/mitts and maybe an extra warm sweater.

Wed. April 4: Public Lecture, 4-5pm, Humanities Centre (HC) L3
