All you need is a Blueprint tracking card and a desire to get involved!
It’s up to you to choose which workshops and activities fit your interest and your schedule. Once you have successfully completed the program, you will receive a certificate of completion to include on your resume and in your portfolio.

TOM’S POPCORN TALKS

MONDAYS, 5PM – 6PM
Innis Residence, Events Room

Starting on January 18th, Tom MacKay will be holding a weekly “popcorn talk” in the Innis Residence Events room from 5PM-6PM and everyone is invited!
Each session will include a quick and energetic “microtalk” on a specific issue, usually (but not always) about money. And each session will have a different flavour of popcorn. On top of that, courtesy of the Office of Student Life, there will be a selection of drinks!
Who is Tom? He’s an Innis College Associate Registrar, specializing in financial issues, and pretty good at overall question-answering.
Here are the first two topics:

  • JANUARY 18TH: THE POST-HOLIDAY BUDGET BLUES
  • JANUARY 25TH: SCHOLARSHIPS 101: WHAT’S OUT THERE

They are all free, informative, and fun, not least because: popcorn. Come check it out!
