Happy New Year, UCalgary!

Welcome back. In case we haven’t met yet, I’m Shaziah Jinnah Morsette, your Students’ Union President. I have a few updates on SU programs and events to kick off the winter semester.

Take the SU Survey

Take the annual SU Survey now and enter to win one of ten $100 gift cards. It’s your chance to voice your thoughts on the SU and your student experience – we want to make them even better, but we can’t do it without your help. It only takes 10 minutes: take the survey now.

Fun nights coming up at the Den

  • Music Bingo: Tuesday, Jan. 16 from 6 – 9 p.m.
  • Barbie Trivia night: Tuesday, Jan. 23 from 6 – 8:30 p.m.
  • C of Red at the Den: Thursday, Jan. 25. Join us for Calgary Flames giveaways and Den specials. The fun starts at 4:30 p.m. – see you there!

Work with US: Run in the SU General Election 

Have you ever thought about taking on a leadership role at the SU? The SU General Election is coming soon. Official nomination packages will be available at the end of the month – but in the meantime, we’re regularly updating our election webpages with important information and deadlines. Save the date for election orientation sessions, happening at 12:30 p.m. on Jan. 31 and 2:00 p.m. on Feb. 1!

SU Clubs Week: Jan. 15 – 17

Clubs Week is back! Stop by the North and South Courtyards in Mac Hall – there’s bound to be one or more clubs that’s a perfect fit for you.

Pet Therapy in That Empty Space: Jan. 17

The puppies are back! Pet Therapy returns on Wednesday, Jan. 17 at 12 p.m.

SU Volunteer Fair: Jan. 24

Are you looking for your volunteering niche? Join us in the Mac Hall North Courtyard on Wednesday, Jan. 24 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. to connect with volunteer organizations from across Calgary.

Mac Hall Concerts

Have you ever been to a concert in Mac Hall? Follow us at @macewanhall on Instagram, or subscribe to our email list to make sure you never miss a show.

Health and Dental Plan Deadline (Opt-out and Family Add-on): Jan. 26

If you are a new student this semester, you should know that you are automatically enrolled in the SU’s health and dental plan. If you have alternate coverage, you may opt out by Jan. 26.

If January is your enrolment anniversary (you are not a new student but you started at UCalgary in a previous January), then this is also your annual deadline for adding family members. Details and forms are all here at:

You’ll hear from me again soon, but in the meantime the best way to stay up to date is to follow the SU on Instagram or TikTok at @SUUofC.

Your Students’ Union President
