There are few ways to enrich our lives more so than travelling but as students, funds are tight and time in short supply. Luckily, you only need walk to Wyckham House for diverse, and inclusive, spaces and programming. Cultural and Indigenous Inclusion programming occurs weekly in Wyckham House and includes the Aboriginal Ancestry, Drum Circle, Indigenous Crafts, Metis History, International Student Eat & Greet, and Building Bridges programs.
Explore the cultures of MRU by tapping into your artistic side! Indigenous Crafts and the Drum Circle are both on Thursday, every Thursday, and walk-ins are encouraged. Both crafts and music are proven stress-reducing activities which make these programs great for decompressing at the end of a busy school week.
Looking to learn more about your own genealogy and history? Regardless of your cultural heritage, our guest instructors and researchers can help you discover more about yourself and others at the Aboriginal Ancestry and Metis History programs. Learning more about your ancestry may even help you obtain funding and scholarships for your education!
A diverse personal network is a strong personal network. Make connections with students from all walks of life at the International Student Eat & Greet or the Building Bridges: Talking Circle programs. Meet new people, including international students, and enjoy free treats at both programs! Bannock anyone?
