Think you know everything there is to know about the United States? Students at York University’s Glendon College want to challenge this assumption and help you discover more about Canada’s closest neighbor.

Every year, organizers in the school’s International Studies Symposium choose a place to highlight, and this year’s symposium showcases America. It’s the 19th annual edition and will include talks by the U.S. Consul General to Toronto Jim Dickmeyer and Fulbright scholars, as well as panels on foreign policy, media, environment, economy, healthcare and education.

One of the best parts of the U.S. is the food and this is not overlooked at the event as with ticket purchases there will be a chance to dine on delicious American cuisine. Tickets are open to the public and you’ll have a chance to meet diplomats, government officials and scholars to further the conversation on learning about the U.S.

One of the most unique aspects of this program is it is entirely organized and managed by a small group of undergraduate students at Glendon, hence a great learning experience no matter which way you look at it. See you there!
