YOGA 30 November 2011

 There will be a yoga session on Wednesday November 30, at 5:30 in TASC 1 - 9204. I strongly encourage you to come, since I'm pretty sure it's going to be fun and relaxing, exercising body and mind at the same time. It's specially beneficial, since it's the end of the semester and there are lots of workload with stress and this one hour can help us relax and energize.
Cost: $5
Bring a yoga mat. Beginners welcome!

November Tea Social

All CS grad students are invited to our November Tea Social event!

Place: SURREY 4040 (Galleria 4)
Date : November 24th, Thursday
Time : 4pm – 5pm

This month we will be holding the event at the architectural masterpiece SFU Surrey campus.

This is a good opportunity for students who are mainly at the Burnaby campus to get to know their colleagues over there and discover one of two beautiful SFU satellite campuses. We will be having 3 kinds of tea and different kinds of cookies. I would also like to invite all Surrey students who were not able to make it during the last socials to join us, get to know their colleagues, and discuss any issues regarding their participation in CSGSA meetings and events.
