WELCOME BACK!


Hello and welcome to the first issue of the Innis Student Life eNewsletter for the 2016-17 school year! We've had a bit of a makeover and we hope you like it! 

My name is Kristen Rachuk, and I have the wonderful job of creating this bi-weekly newsletter for you, as the Communications Assistant for the second year in a row. I am going into my third year, here at UofT, and I am so glad that I stumbled into a College that feels so much like home. 

Along with the eNewsletter, I am one of the the Equity & Outreach Directors on the Innis College Student Society, and one of your Orientation Leaders! (Orientation Week is my favourite week of the year.)

Say hello when you see me, and keep your eyes peeled every other week for this eNewsletter email!
