For the first week of the new semester, Andrew and Ryan are joined by four MEL members, Faye (our VP Mentorship), Larissa, Eve and Edward. We hope all our MEL members had a fun and relaxing winter break—the participants in a recent exciting skiing expedition certainly did! Other fun winter break activities include secret Santa, or even the white elephant variation, in which case listen on for some gift-buying tips (curiously enough, the more generic the better in some cases!). And for those of you who are currently struggling with putting together a conflict-free schedule, we know your pain—Larissa describes her slightly incompatible double major and Eve, the inconvenience of having classes on two separate campuses. Finally, the podcast concludes with some important information about upcoming MEL events.
