Skating at Parc La Fontaine

The Adams Club went on a local excursion for some night skating on Parc La Fontaine’s natural ice rink. Team members from Tuff Schist and Stoners played a game you could loosely refer to as hockey, while others skated around and enjoyed the lights. Hot beverages (courtesy of Ashley) and dinner called an end to the night. Thanks to Sarah Bodeving for organizing this event, and thanks to Haylea Nisbet for the photo!

Seminar Speaker: Dominique Weis

The Adams Club hosted our first annual guest speaker: Dr. Dominique Weis. During her visit, Dr. Weis held a 90 minute Q&A session with grad students to talk about research, academic life, and gave advice for finding postdoc or PhD positions. She also gave a talk at the department’s weekly seminar. Thanks to Dr. Weis and all the students involved for a fruitful visit.
