As you may have read in a previous post, I was a team member of USA Symposium 2014. I was fortunate to have the opportunity to get to know many of the panelists who participated. Many of our panelists were referred to us with the help of Fulbright Canada, who administer the Canada-U.S. Fulbright Program; a program that supports educational exchanges of Canadian and American scholars.
On April 25/14, five (5) of our panelists contributed to a post on the Fulbright Canada Blog. I feel their comments have further confirmed the tremendous success of USA Symposium 2014.
On a more personal note, the comments made by the (5) panelists on the Fulbright Canada blog validated the work I put in ensure our panelists had a rewarding experience. It feels good to have my work recognized!
I hope you take a moment to read our scholars comments on the Fulbright Canada Blog.
5 Panels, 12 Panelists, 5 Moderators, 7 Coordinators, 1 Supervisor, 20 + Volunteers.

Apologies up front- I am late in my post. Last week I promised you a post USA Symposium 2014 wrap up. I am all excuses this week as there is simply too much to do for the end of term – I have essays, exams and presentations – you name it, I got it. It’s crazy! My post-symposium wrap up will come next week. Promise.
This week, I am going to leave you with the classic song, 9 to 5 by Dolly Parton, in salute of my G7 team. Thank you ladies for coming together – our event was truly successful all thanks to our hard work and dedication.

USA Symposium 2014 is one week away!
This year, I am a member of the Symposium Team at Glendon College. Symposium is a unique opportunity for undergraduate students to conceive, organize and host an academic conference featuring a country of their choosing. This year, we chose to showcase The United States.
We have a strong group of panelists speaking about a wide range of topics, from Obamacare to the Yes Men. We have scholars from the Fulbright Centre and scholars from the International Studies Association.
