On Friday Feb. 27th, ChemClub will be hosting the 3rd Cultural Night of the 2014-2015 academic year. The theme for this event is Mexican, so get ready for some spice!

This event will start at 6 pm and will be held, as always in the Davenport Atrium. Alcoholic beverages will be available for $2. Please remember to bring ID. Non-alcoholic beverages will also be served along side authentic Mexican food from Blazing Kitchens Catering. Entertainment will be provided by Mariachi Fuego. Afterwards, we’re headed off to a pub to finish off the night. Save the date so you don’t miss out!

ChemClub has scheduled this event to align with the 2015 New Grad Recruitment Weekend to give prospective students an idea of life in the UofT Department of Chemistry.

New Grad Recruitment Night: Incoming Graduate Students

Life in the Chemistry Department is enriched by a very active student body. The UofT ChemClub organizes numerous departmental activities fostering a strong sense of community among students and Postdocs.

ChemClub consists of 9 elected graduate students who serve on the board for one year, helping to organize and co-ordinate activities in the department. Typically ChemClub hosts one major event per month, ranging from catered cultural nights in the department, to sports activities in the Toronto area (such as curling or kayaking), to out of town weekend events (such as the annual ski trip at Mont Tremblant). To see some past events held in the chemistry department, check out our Flickr page or our events blog.
