Run with us!

PrintHello UCalgary!

Are you a leader in the campus community? Would you like to be? The SU is encouraging students of all backgrounds, ages, genders and areas of study to run in the upcoming SU Elections. Have a unique perspective? Share it! Don’t see yourself represented in the current SU? Run! The SU is a wonderful place to gain professional experience, connect with your faculty, and influence university policy.

Curious about running but not sure if it’s for you? Anyone can do it! Meet the Chief Returning Officers and learn more at one of our free Run with US workshops!

If you’re interested, nomination packages will be available online starting today and must be dropped off in person at the SU office during nomination days, February 11-13, between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. New for this year, nomination packages will also be accepted at specific times at both Foothills and Spy Hill campuses!

All undergrads can vote online via your student centre or in person at polling stations across campus during voting days, March 5-7. Everything else you need to know, including the positions available, can be found on our website.

Not interested in student politics? How about sex? UCalgary’s annual Sex Week is coming up, February 11-15. The week includes a resource fair/carnival, provocative speakers, and hands-on workshops. It’s a fantastic opportunity to have all your questions about sex, love, relationships and so much more answered. Check out all the details and schedules and we’ll see you there.

Need some new reading material before winter break? Want to support a great cause? Come visit the Students for Literacy Book Sale! We’ll have a fabulous selection of books for $2 and $3, available February 11-15 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in Mac Hall. All proceeds will go to supporting literacy in our community.

Do you have a prof or TA who blows your mind? If so, you should nominate them for a Teaching Excellence Award (especially if you missed out last semester)! It’s easier than using, just complete the short online form. The deadline is February 22.

Have you taken the SU Survey yet? There are two good reasons to do it: (1) We use your feedback to improve our programs, services, and advocacy every year. (2) You could win some awesome prizes like a flight voucher or a $10 Mac Hall food voucher. The survey closes on February 15, so take it now and tell a friend.
