As school is slowly creeping up on us again, let us reminisce and celebrate the great memories we’ve made at the 2016 LMPSU Summer BBQ.
As the warm smell of freshly grilled patties filled the air, eager faces (both old and new) lined the grass slopes of the UTSU quad in hungry anticipation of the LMPSU’s freshly made, home-cooked burgers (from Costco)
Grilled by our very own Internal Affairs Officer, veteran BBQ chef, and all-round awesome guy, Alan Huynh, the annual LMPSU BBQ burgers were the perfect way to welcome in the new academic year, and of course, our incoming 2nd year LMP students (welcome!).
The tight-knit LMP spirit was apparent from the very beginning, with faculty, graduate, and undergraduate students alike mingling and making easy conversation with each other. A game of badminton was quickly initiated, with three people to a team as the rules were overthrown in favor of inclusivity.
Finally, as the sun dipped lower towards the horizon, a great day came to a great end with a communal Campfire-Song song singalong (featuring the guest appearance of a guitar and the absence of a campfire). As we come out of the summer haze and head into the school year, one thing remains certain: this will be another amazing year to be in LMP!
