INTRODUCING: JAMES CHAPMAN




Hey Innis! My name is James Chapman and I'm the Clubs and Merchandise Director for the ICSS, as well as the Creative Director of the Innis Herald, and a Senior House Representative on the Innis Residence Council.

I'm in my second year studying study political science and urban studies, and outside of Innis I continue to be active with the campus New Democrats and with City Councillor Joe Cressy's office. It all makes for a busy schedule, but I would emphasize to both first year and upper year students that a busy schedule is an important part of the university experience! While academics continue to be the focus of your time here, what you do outside of the classroom is what makes your time here memorable.

It's an excellent time of year to get involved at Innis. I hope you can find something that both interests you and you feel comfortable with. Of course if you can't I'm always accepting applications to start new clubs at Innis. Email me at clubsandmerch.icss@gmail.com.

Also come by the ICSS office to purchase some Innis Swag!

ACADEMIC SKILLS FOR SUCCESS


DO YOU NEED ACADEMIC ACCOMMODATIONS?

WRITING PLUS ACADEMIC SKILLS WORKSHOPS 

The Writing Centres, in collaboration with U of T Libraries, the Academic Success Centre, and the ASSU, are offering a campus-wide series of academic skills workshops! All workshops are free! All of the workshops are offered several times in the year, so check out both Saturday and weekday schedules to find times that suit you!

INNIS COLLEGE STUDENT SOCIETY


Sending kind congratulations to the candidates elected for the ICSS and ICC. I look forward to a year working with you all. Representing the Innis student body’s voices on both the ICSS and ICC is so important to Innis’ student parity. It is great to see such a high engagement with the election this year. For the candidates who were not successful through election, there are still many opportunities to get involved! Portfolios on the ICSS will be hiring Associates soon, so if you are interested in becoming an Associate, please feel free to email me at thepresident.icss@gmail.com.

All the best,
