MUSEletter - Week of September 26, 2022


How is it the last week of September already? As the weather starts to get a bit more chilly and the leaves start to fall, remember to layer up and take good care of yourself. Treat yourself to a latte or get that extra hour of sleep before a morning class.

There's lots of fun and exciting things happening on campus. Read more below to engage with your MMST and UofT Community!
