Lots of news this week so pay attention til the end!!
1. Biology MUGS!!!!
We are thinking of ordering some of those really cool mugs that invited speakers always get (the ones with tiles representing various branches of research going on in the Biology Department, with the words “McGill Biology” in the middle).
We want to know what the interest level is from the student body and what people would be willing to pay for one of these mugs (different mug shapes and colours will affect the prices). The amount of mugs we order will depend on the demand we receive here.
Let us know quickly what you think here!!
***Shoutout to Claire and Sami from the Brouhard Lab who came up with the design***
2. Staff Appreciation Lunch: April 25th @ 12pm HELP NEEDED
It’s time for our annual potluck lunch to show our appreciation for all the great staff that provides support throughout our degrees happen, especially with the Stewart Biology West Wing move this year. This is our opportunity to thank them!
Join us on April 25th (Administrative Professionals Day) at noon in the Break room on the 8th floor of Stewart Biology.
It’s a potluck, signup so we don’t get 10 veggie+dip platters!! If you want to come, you need to bring something. Only then will you be able to enjoy everyone’s wonderful food.
Advertising this one separately this week, because July 1st is approaching and a lot of people are looking to move into new apartments or find new roommates.
This week’s fun fact: If a female ferret does not mate for over a year, she risks dying. She will go into extended heat and can die of estrogen-induced aplastic anemia without medical intervention. Apparently, she may also act altruistically and redistribute resources to mating ferrets as a way to reallocate resources to individuals that will benefit to the growth of the population and propagation of related individuals.
