Welcome back UCalgary Students!

It’s been a busy beginning to the fall semester for the Students’ Union, and if I haven’t met you yet, I’m Branden Cave your SU President. You’ll receive these emails every few weeks throughout the year filled with key details to keep you up to speed!

First off, check out Clubs Week Sept. 18-22 in MacHall. Hundreds of clubs will each have a table. My advice: join at least one! Meet some new friends and enrich your student experience. Follow SU Clubs on Facebook and Twitter @SUUofCClubs for more info! Also check out the SU ClubHub for news and events.

Are you looking to get involved with the SU? You should consider joining one of our committees or the brand-new President’s Consultative Task Force. These are all opportunities for you to assist SU elected officials in their decision-making and will give you resume-worthy experience in organizational governance. Click for more information on committees or the Task Force. The deadline to apply for the President’s Consultative Task Force is September 29, and committee application deadlines vary.

Lockers! If you need a place to store your books this semester, get a locker from your SU. Log into your Student Centre to reserve yours today! (There’s even some in that shiny new engineering building.)

Are you covered under your parent’s health and dental plan? If so, you should opt-out of the SU’s health and dental plan which you pay into automatically when you register at the University of Calgary. Note that you only need to opt-out once during your university career. The deadline to opt-out is September 29 and you can do so by clicking here.

The SU, along with UCalgary and the Graduate Students’ Association, is excited to be hosting a mayoral forum on September 20 in MacHall. Come out and hear what all the candidates running for mayor think about issues that matter to you. If you want to attend, you’ll need to register in advance by clicking here.

Finally, if you had a great time at Kickoff game and the SU Tailgate Party last week (or even if you missed it), you’ll want to mark your calendars for the upcoming Homecoming Game on Saturday, September 23 when our Dinos face off against the University of Saskatchewan Huskies. UCalgary students get in free! Click here for more info.

I hope your first couple days have been a blast! If you have any problems on campus feel free to come to the SU offices or contact your faculty representative and we’ll help you out! See you around MacHall!
