Students at Laval University enjoyed a Beer and Pizza reception on September 13. The CIM Quebec City Branch hosts this event annually to inform and recruit students. Students are offered partial payment of their dues if they sign up or renew at this event. This year, 70 students were present, and the branch collected 19 registrations for MetSoc and 23 for CIM national. Drawings were made for four CD holders from CIM national, and the branch offered a $50 gift certificate for Librairie Zone at Laval University. This gift certificate went to Néloumta Blanchet, a first-year geology student.
