iSchool, Bye-School, get it? Sick of this theme already? Well, too bad. Our year end party is approaching fast and we’re getting excited and iSchool patriotic! For some, school’s going to be out forever; for others, school’s just out for the summer. But whatever category you fall under, come and celebrate the start of summer at The Pilot (22 Cumberland St, Toronto – 2nd floor “Stealth Lounge”) on Saturday, April 8th at 8:30 pm! This event is free for all – MI/CRO, MMSt, alum, and guests included. Some appetizers will be provided (courtesy of MISC and FIAA). All the fun will be had, so be there or be iSquare.


No RSVP is required but feel free to check out the Facebook event as we count down with fun memes, gifs and YouTube clips: https://www.facebook.com/events/250177838760339/ Best of luck with the rest of your semesters and we look forward to celebrating with you all!
