Kin Cup is an annual event where the undergrads engage in an epic battle of basketball, dodgeball and soccer against the grad students and faculty. For students, it’s a great way to take a break from studying for exams or to blow off some steam after exams (especially since you will be playing against the profs who wrote your exams!). For faculty, it’s a perfect opportunity to reduce your sedentary time and spend some time with your beloved undergrads.
The undergrads have won 6 years in a row. Undergrads – get that 7th win this year! Grads and faculty – wouldn’t you like to see that streak end? Come out to play some sports and have a good time with your fellow BPK-ers!
The Kin Games team will also be present collecting gently used sports equipment & monetary donations for Jumpstart Kids!
If you have ever considered studying Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy, Chiro or Speech Pathology in Australia then be sure to attend OzTREKK’s Australian Alumni event on Tuesday, January 31st at 5:00pm.
At the event, you will hear from three Canadian physiotherapists who were educated in Australia and one current student from the University of Sydney. The alumni will provide their honest experience on: student life in Australia, what it was like returning to Canada, and any advise they have on securing jobs upon graduation. At the event, you will also be able to speak to Australian University representatives who will provide details about admissions, deadlines, competitive GPA and more.
