Hey everyone!!! Add-drop season is almost over and fall is around the corner. Here’s to having summer last a while longer. Enjoy the sun and the heat with the rest of the week!! (Sorry for the rhyme, I may have had a little too much time…sorry). 😉

This week in History

On September 20th, 480 BC, Themistocles and his Greek fleet win one of history’s first decisive naval victories over Xerxes’ Persian force off Salamis

Welcome Back Event

Hi everyone! I Since summer is over and you’re historian apprenticeships – sorry classes – have started, the HSA would love to give you our official welcome back this FRIDAY September 23rd!!

“After a long summer full of relaxation, the Political Science, International Development Studies, Economics, History, Department of English, and Sociology Students’ Associations invite you to have drinks on us at St. Sulpice, meet some new friends, and party like it’s 1989!

Did we mention drinks on us? Between 9:30pm-10:30pm, so make sure you get here earlier rather than later ;)”

Come out and meet some amazing people! This is a great chance to explore a little bit of Montreal if it is your first year, and if not to hang out and have fun with both old and new friends.
