Snacks such as pizza and timbits were provided to participants. The event was held for the majority in Greek, providing every participant a chance to practice the language. Many of the members that came out are in this years’ Modern Greek Course! The GSA looks forward to hosting more convo clubs in the future!

On September 24, the GSA participated in the biggest soccer tournament of the year CLUBS CUP. Our wonderful members and even a few dedicated friends showed up bright and early to prove their passion for the beautiful game of soccer and to support the GSA. Even though the GSA did not reclaim the championship cup, the day was an overall success as we had an awesome team and enthusiastic cheerleaders! Thank you to all the players and all the members that took time out of their busy schedules to come and support the team! We would also like to congratulate the winners and all the teams who participated!

Clubs Cup After Party

After a long day of playing soccer and battling for the clubs cup trophy, the Greek Students Association, UTICA and OLAS came together to celebrate the annual clubs cup at the Fox and the Fiddle. The night consisted of drinks and karaoke singing, which included songs from many artists such as the Backstreet Boys, Oasis, Kings of Leon and many more fantastic artists. The night was a great opportunity for all three clubs to socialize and meet new people. Thank you to everyone who came out! We look forward to future collaborations with our fellow U of T students.
