Must-Dos Before Winter Ends

Sometimes it’s nice to find some distraction and sometimes it’s nice to do that while tasting wine. So, whether you’re looking for a way to beat the February blues or just something fun to do, this list is for you. First on the list: visit the Gage Park Greenhouse (or the McMaster Greenhouse). What better way to escape the cold harsh reality of the winter season than by visiting a lovely greenhouse? The Gage Park greenhouse offers over 18,000 square feet of beautiful flowers and plants that are grown all year round.

I’m an Introvert, but I Repped

When you think of Welcome Week reps, what’s the first image that comes to your mind? Chances are it is a bunch of extroverted, loud and excited students running around and dancing in brightly coloured jumpsuits. Yes, there certainly are those types of reps, but as someone who repped for Welcome Week last year, I’m here to tell you that isn’t necessarily true. As someone who is quite introverted and experiences social anxiety, I never thought I’d ever wear a rep suit.
