On February 28, at an off-campus event targeted towards student leaders at Laurentian University, students prepared for the imminent Israel Apartheid Week. Over twenty students participated to encourage a sense of community and social cohesion. Students enjoyed both the social experience as well as the food, talking about the event afterwards. The event attracted students from many different academic backgrounds, such as sociology, political science, but also from more math and science related fields, such as computer science and the sciences. Because the event attracted student leaders, those student leaders were able to mobilize and counter Israel Apartheid Week activities at the Laurentian campus.
