A club filled with myth, food, trivia, and much more! As Ancient Studies and Classical Studies students we examine the civilizations of the ancient Greeks and Romans. We aim to popularize Classics and Ancient Studies at Laurentian, and though some of our members are not in the Ancient Studies or Classical Studies programs, we all share a passion for all things Greek and Roman!
The Women’s Studies Association (WSA) at Thorneloe University on the Sudbury campus of Laurentian University is an association that works towards equity amongst all regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation and class. We believe that the world would be a better place if everyone had equal rights and our mission is to bring awareness to this issue. While the Co-Chairs of the WSA are Women’s Studies Majors, all are welcome to join the association in an effort to promote equality and unity.
International Day of the Girl was the first event hosted by the Women’s Studies Association. In an effort to raise awareness around girls’ education, the WSA held a bake sale, lemonade stand, and clothing swap to raise money for the organization Because I Am a Girl. This organization funds and promotes educational needs for girls. The WSA also worked towards having the City of Greater Sudbury officially recognize International Day of the Girl. On October 11, 2012, Deputy Mayor Joscelyne Landry-Altmann attended the event and read the official proclamation announcing the recognition of International Day of the Girl.
