5) French Classes




If you would like to brush up your medical/dental French, please be advised the Faculty is organizing workshops starting Saturday mornings, January 14th.  They offer 5  levels of conversation French (beginner to high intermediate).  Beginner workshops are a great opportunity for those who have little or no French.


If you are interested, please be sure to sign up right away.   For detailed information and the electronic registration form, go to http://www.medicine.mcgill.ca/ugme/curriculum/frenchcourse_en.htm<https://exchange.mcgill.ca/owa/redir.aspx?C=3d38c6358bfd4c7d95214b17150103da&URL=http%3a%2f%2fwww.medicine.mcgill.ca%2fugme%2fcurriculum%2ffrenchcourse_en.htm%20\t%20_blank>.


For first-time registrants, a placement test is mandatory unless you are a TRUE BEGINNER in which case you will indicate that on the registration form and sign a waiver to that effect.  Dates of placement tests are found at the site linked above.


For those of you who are currently enrolled or who have taken a placement test in the past, you are exempt from the placement test but registration online is still mandatory – please just indicate that you have already taken the test and which level you achieved.


For all registrants – you must come in person to one of the placement tests to provide payment (see payment details here http://www.medicine.mcgill.ca/ugme/curriculum/frenchcourse_form_en.htm<https://exchange.mcgill.ca/owa/redir.aspx?C=3d38c6358bfd4c7d95214b17150103da&URL=http%3a%2f%2fwww.medicine.mcgill.ca%2fugme%2fcurriculum%2ffrenchcourse_form_en.htm%20\t%20_blank>), to sign the contract, and to sign the placement test waiver if you are a true beginner.




6) Office Hours


As you all know due to closing of the Wilson Hall basement the NUS office was closed down. While we are still in transition to finding a new location there has not been a chance for office hours. We have decided as a council that this is something that is vital to students and we have brought back office hours for the month of November. On Tuesdays from 13:35-15:25 and Friday’s from 11:35-12:25 you will have the opportunity to meet with council members in Wilson Hall Rm. 104. This is an opportunity for you to ask questions, purchase tickets, etc. Our website is up to date of which council members will be present at which times under “contact us”.




7) Phone-a-Thon Volunteer (Dinner provided)

On Monday, November 28th a phone-a-Thon will be taking place to raise money for the School of Nursing! We need lots of volunteers to help make calls, so if you are willing to donate your time please email allyson.debolster@mail.mcgill.ca<https://exchange.mcgill.ca/owa/redir.aspx?C=3d38c6358bfd4c7d95214b17150103da&URL=mailto%3aallyson.debolster%40mail.mcgill.ca%20\t%20_blank> to sign up before Nov. 22!  It will take place from 5:30-8:00pm including training, dinner and calls. Help us raise money for our School




8) Course evaluations


These are really important for everyone to fill out. The profs appreciate the feedback and use that information to make adjustments to course outlines.


If you show your class rep or any other council member that you have completed ALL of your course evaluations either by screen shots or doing them during out office hours, you will be entered in A DRAW TO WIN BOOKSTORE GIFTCARDS!!!
