We Are Now Closed To Submissions

Thank you all for your interest in IDIOM and thank you for submitting. Our overall total was 106 essays, which is encouraging. I would also like to thank the English Department, ASSU and Victoria College for helping us advertise and for being instrumental in our high submission rate. I would also like to thank my Board for all the personal advertising they have done. We are currently reviewing submissions and will be emailing out decisions in mid-February.

Stay tuned for news on our Spring Launch and come out to our bake sale at Sidney Smith on Friday, February 17th!
