Heather Summers and Emily Adams are this year’s Welcome Committee Co-Chairs. They are excited to carry on the Welcome Month tradition at Green College.
Hello, new Green College Resident Members!
We are Heather and Emily and we are your Welcome Month Committee Co-Chairs! We are second year resident members and are really excited to welcome you to Green College in September. We are both from Ontario and both completed our undergrads in Ontario. Emily is studying law and Heather is a master’s student in Geography.
Welcome Month was such a great experience for both of us last year that we decided we wanted to be a part of making Welcome Month great for new Residents this year. There will be a lot going on during Welcome Month but the goal is that by the end you feel a part of this great community. All of our committees are planning some great events for you, including a hike, urban safari, coffee house and weekend pancake breakfast. We look forward to meeting you all soon!

For my M.Sc. work I am interested in examining the impact of climate change on the health and function of coral reef ecosystems.”
