Noon Working

Noon Networking takes place on Wednesdays during the fall and winter terms from 11:30-1:00pm in the Ceremonial Hall.

Every Thursday from 1:00-3:00pm in the Ceremonial Hall, Indigenous students are invited to unwind and work on their crafts. This is a bring-your-own-craft event, but IACE does have some beading materials if needed.
