Past Events:

Laserquest is happening this Friday, October 21! We'll meet up after seminar, take the bus down together. It costs $14 for two games, and then there will be free pizza! This event is open to the faculty so you can bring your friends. Just make sure to email Barrett beforehand so he has an idea of numbers.


Elect the first year Representative to the KISS Exec team on Friday, just after seminar.


Shortly thereafter? prepare yourself for a weekend of awesome at Elora Gorge for the annual KI camping trip. From 7pm on Friday night till about 12 noon on Sunday KISS hopes that you'll join us for a general awesome time of sports, music, dancing, laughing, crying (with laughter), swimming, and of course, campfires and s'mores. What we need you to do? Check out the facebook page for a couple more details and let Chelsea know about whether you want to include yourself in the meal plan that's being organized (vegetarian options). If you can, try to make sure that there's a tent out there somewhere that has upwards of 1 square foot of space for you to sleep in, because KISS doesn't provide the tents. If you have a tent and are willing to share your space, let people know! The same goes for cars, we're hoping that some serious self-organization can happen here, and make sure that everybody that wants to go, can. So if you have a car and are driving out, let us know too, and we can connect people who need rides, to people who've got rides.

One more time... Food, tents, rides. Let's get organized and have a camptastic time.


OMgoodness, but wait. Isn't there one more awesome thing going on next weekend on Sunday the 18th? KI Welcome Picnic at Ed Jernigan's people. This is great if you could't make it to the camping trip (and even if you could!!). There's going to be a bus which picks up people at the University at 3:30 on Sunday (exact location soon) to deliver them to Ed's place. If you want to get there independently, be sure to get Ed's address from someone and then we'll see you at 4 o'clock! This is a great opportunity to get acquainted with the Faculty members who make KI happen, as well as all the other students. Bus leaves at 7:30pm from Ed's to return you to your fantastic new (or old) places of residence.

KISS Fall Term Holiday Wrap-up Event

Will include:

KIX - our annual gift Xchange (KI Family!!!) 6-7:30pm, ENV Coffeeshop

Followed by: ENV-wide Holiday bowling - a fun and exciting adventure for the whole ENV family!

8-10pm, WATERLOO BOWLING LANES 14 Princess Street West, Waterloo All 10 lanes booked for us!

GIFT Xchange details: Any KI student wishing to participate will purchase and wrap a KI-friendly gift. This can pose a challenge because we all know how difficult it can be to define a KI student. Remember that the gift should be gender neutral and KI appropriate. What that includes is completely up to you! Some ideas from other years included: Chocolate or candy, things from the UW store, tarot cards, music, homemade gifts etc etc. Anything goes really - be creative! Picking a gift can be difficult. If you're stuck, a safe bet would be the UW store in SCH. I have seen quite a few interesting and KI-worthy items there.

The gift value should be approx. $10 Don't forget to wrap it! Good Luck

Bring your laptop to follow along for the beginning or demonstrate a problem you're asking about.
