Upcoming Events

CUPS End of Year Mixer

Carleton University Philosophy Society (CUPS) would love to invite you to our End of The Year Philosophy Mixer! We have rented out the top floor of Pour Boy Pub for April 30th from 7 – 11 pm (495 Somerset St W, Ottawa, ON). We want to celebrate surviving another pandemic semester, and provide an opportunity to see each other and hang out in person again. We hope the night is a relaxed space to come, enjoy a few drinks, and meet fellow students and faculty behind the empty zoom pages.
