Undergraduate Research Week (and some news about January Clubs Week!)

November 23, 2021  |   Found in Presidents Message

Hello UCalgary,

I know it’s crunch time right now, but if you need a quick break I’ve got a few updates for you on some events that are happening around campus before exams, and a few more updates to look forward to in the new year.

URS Research Week: Nov. 23 – 26

The SU’s 16th annual Undergraduate Research Symposium is happening this week. This year’s event is a virtual showcase of undergraduate student research from all faculties, hosted on YouTube. Forty-six undergraduate researchers have submitted short video presentations, and are competing for $23,000 in prizes and scholarships. Judges have been busy adjudicating these presentations, and the awards will be announced on Friday, Nov. 26.

Stress Less Week: Grab and Go Edition is next week (Nov. 29 – Dec. 3)

Stress Less Week returns to Mac Hall next week. Drop by the north courtyard on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at noon and pick up a surprise activity kit that you can take with you. Or join us for free Yoga in the Space on Tuesday and Thursday (you must RSVP for yoga – see web events for the link).

Textbook Consignment

Are you ready to say goodbye to some old textbooks? Bound and Copied can help you turn them into cash. Bring your used textbooks to Bound and Copied, Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. While you’re there, pick up some holiday reading options as well!

Are you already thinking about 2022? So are we.

Clubs Week

We are excited to announce that January Clubs Week will be held in person, Jan. 17 – 21 in the Mac Hall north courtyard. Watch our social media channels for more information over the next few weeks.

SU General Election

Have you ever thought about taking on a leadership role at the SU? Official nomination packages will be available Jan. 24 – but in the meantime, we’re regularly updating our election webpages with important information and deadlines. Want the details about what it’s like to campaign? Need insight into the life of an SLC member? Stay tuned to social media and our website for dates of pre-election workshops in January.

Holiday Closures

The SU offices and Bound and Copied will be closed after Friday, Dec. 10, and will reopen on Monday, Jan. 3, 2022.

Lost and Found: report your lost item

Did you know that the SU manages the Info Centre and Lost and Found in Mac Hall? We recently added a web claim form on our website where you can report a lost item, making it easier for our team to reunite lost items with their owners.

Good luck on your exams! You’re only a few weeks away from a well-deserved break.

All the best,

Nicole Schmidt
President, Students’ Union
