INTRODUCING: ELSPETH ARBOW 


Hi everyone! My name is Elspeth and I’m heading into my 4th year here at Innis. In my time here, I’ve done basically everything the College has to offer. So, here’s some curated advice.
  • Upper years: join the Alumni Mentorship Program. It’s never too early to look past graduation, and the knowledge I gained from my mentor last year thoroughly shifted how I am going about the rest of my education.
  • The Innis Writing Centre is literally the best place of all time. As soon as you get your syllabi, book your appointments for the semester.
  • CINSSU’s Free Friday Films over at Town Hall are litttt.
  • The French toast at the Innis Café is divine and served all day.
I could honestly have an advice column in every single newsletter and it not be exhaustive. Until then, I’ll be doling out unsolicited advice during my ICSS office hours (Wednesday 1-3pm!). Feel free to boost my already sky-high ego by following me on social media (elspethsface on Snapchat and Instagram).
 
Deuces,
Elspeth
