To all Archival Studies MA students,
Members at the last student chapter meeting supported the idea of establishing regular meetings for our members. We envision students committing an evening to working on their thesis (or other schoolwork) in the company of other students at a predetermined location. In the interest of making this a designated work time, be prepared to turn off your cell phone for these sessions! After putting in a few good hours of work, we can reward ourselves with all the texting our fingers can handle and, more importantly, we can go out together and socialize!
The University of Winnipeg Archives has been kindly offered as the location for our first meeting that will take place on Thursday, April 10th from 4:00 – 7:00 pm. In the future, we hope to select regular meeting times (ie: every second Thursday evening) in order to establish consistency.
Hope to see you next week for our inaugural meeting!
