Student wins entrepreneur award

Emily Dimytosh, Comm ’12, was awarded the Satchu Prize by Canada’s Top 36, a national entrepreneurial development program late last month.

The business leadership award is the highest recognition the organization can give to an individual member.

As a year-long program, Canada’s Top 36 challenges participants to venture into a business endeavour by creating a mobile app.

Participants are given support from senior entrepreneurial mentors, access to a maximum of $50,000 in funding and instruction from faculty across the globe.

School of Religion reunites with University

After a decision made at the Sept. 23 Board of Trustees meeting, the University and Queen’s School of Religion will join together.

Renamed from Queen’s Theological College in 2009, the School of Religion has been split from the University since 1912. The split allowed Queen’s to receive public funding.

The School of Religion currently offers courses to Queen’s undergraduates but also provides independent theological programs.

The merger comes into effect in May 2012.

As a result of the integration, all programs offered by the school will become part of the Arts and Sciences faculty.
