In early May, Dr John Walsh traveled to Greece to visit historical monuments and locations with 30 students and alumni. The group visited Athens, Mycenae, Epidaurus, Corinth, Olympia, Delphi, and several Greek islands. Preparations are underway to visit again next year, and John plans to add Crete to the list of destinations.

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
