Epilepsy Canada awards

Epilepsy Canada has announced a new scholarship program to help 30 young people with epilepsy across Canada continue their studies at the college or university level.

Students aged 15 to 29 and under the care of a Canadian physician for the treatment of epilepsy may apply. The awards will be announced in March 2003.

For more information, please call Michèle Kaplan, Epilepsy Canada, (514) 845-7855.









Art will Matter in March

Art Matters is going in to high gear in preparation for next month’s opening. The festival, which will take place from March 7 to 21, is celebrating its third year.

This year’s festival will showcase the work of more than 100 artists, with the help of more than 70 volunteers. This year’s organizers, Craig Dessen and Emily Pearlman, are pleased with preparations so far.

Venues will be around campus plus such downtown locations as the Belgo Building, the lobby of the YMCA, a women’s shelter and possibly the Salvation Army.

A program listing all events, including art shows and parties, will be available March 1 through the CSU office, libraries and tabling.

Hockey rematch: players wanted

Last year, a team of faculty and staff competed against John Molson School of Business graduate students in both a hockey match and a soccer game. The faculty and staff team won the hockey game, but were sorely defeated on the soccer field.

This winter, the CGSA is again organizing a hockey game along the same lines. The place and date will be set soon.

If you are interested in joining the faculty/staff team, please get in touch with Lissa Matyas at the MBA Office, at 848-2716, or lissa@jmsb.concordia.ca.

Ten players and one goalie are needed to form a complete team. Enthusiasm and team spirit count as much as physical fitness!

Let’s show those MBA students what we’re made of!
