CLASSU/TIFF Ticket Giveaway!?!?!

You heard right!! TIFF, as part of a tribute to Guillermo del Toro, is hosting a screening of Jason and the Argonauts (1963) on Saturday, November 4th at 8:45PM at the TIFF Bell Lightbox Theatre. It is an awesome chance to see a classic about Classics  on the big screen at a swanky theatre, so make sure you get tickets (student pricing available).

TIFF has reached out to CLASSU and wants to offer our undergraduate students the chance to win two tickets to the showing! That’s right, the chance to kick off Fall Reading Week correctly–by being classy with CLASSU at TIFF!

Entries are due in by noon on November 1st. You can enter one of three ways:

  1. Come to CLASSU’s Halloween Pub Night IN COSTUME on Thursday, October 26th, and give us your email address!
  2. Order a Classics Department hoodie by Halloween, and mark on your order form that you’d like to be entered for tickets.
  3. Send CLASSU an email telling us what your favourite Classics-related film is, and how much you’d like to see it at an upcoming CLASSU Movie Night!

The winner will be announced the evening of November 1st! Thanks, TIFF!

Peer Mentorship Program

Are YOU a new or lower-year student who wants to meet new people (who are also studying Classics) and get some insight into the way this wild institution that is UofT works?

Or, are YOU an upper-year student with insights to give who wants to meet new people and gain some valuable mentorship experience?

Sign up now for CLASSU’s Peer Mentorship Program! We will match pairs of lower- and upper-year students based on common interests, make sure the both of you can keep in contact online or on your own, and hold occasional PMP lunches to meet each other and hang out in person (with free lunch)!
