Reflection on the impact of current and historical events will be top of mind this week as we honour the services of our veterans. An International Photo Challenge enables you to share your perspective on a changing world, and a discussion on the results of the American Election is an opportunity to reflect on international politics. Be sure to take part in some on-campus drop-in recreation classes to invigorate your mind and body, and come and cheer on the Blues as they take on the CBC Bearcats in basketball and volleyball this week.
