• September 9: Brock Bazaar

    It’s a chance to score a good deal while supporting students who want to help others.

    The second annual Brock Bazaar will be held Saturday, Sept. 9 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Academic South hallway. The event raises money for the University’s Alternative Reading Week program, which allows students to participate in volunteer work both in the local community and abroad.

    The community wide yard sale, hosted by the Brock Leaders Citizenship Society, allows Brock students, faculty and staff, as well as the broader public, to register and sell their items. The $20 registration fee for sellers is donated to the ARW program, while vendors get to keep whatever they make from selling their items.

    Parking for the event is free in D Lot. Registration can be done online or by visiting Mackenzie Chown A-Block 204. Anyone who would like to donate items to the cause but is unable to attend can connect with organizers via the above link.

  • Brock returns to Canada’s largest comic and gaming event

    For the second year in a row, Brock has a significant presence at the four-day convention that runs from Friday until Sunday in Toronto. Similar to ComicCon, Fan Expo Canada appeals to fans of comics, sci-fi, horror, anime and gaming.

    Brock has a booth in the MTCC’s south building, where it will be in a high-traffic area close to Universal Studios, Cartoon Network and Showcase. The 20×20 booth includes two large video screens. The recruitment team has designed both a twelve-page comic book that tells the Brock story, as well as Cube Pals, three-dimensional paper figures of Isaac Brock and Boomer the Badger, plus a set of accessories for both.
