The Psychology departmental student council has been working very hard to create an event that we hope will allow students to meet their professors in a less formal setting. We’re hoping that you can make it out to our first of these events at The Grad Club (162 Barrie Street) at 9 p.m. on FEBRUARY 16th (Wednesday). For the troubles of you making the trip over we’ll be happy to buy you a beer or appetizer. The event will be a trivia game similar to Who Wants to be a Millionaire in which psychology-related questions will be asked. It would mean a lot to our event if you could make it out and support your students.
