  English club returns to campusPDF files may take a moment to load

The English Literature Students' Society is coming to life again after being disbanded by the Students' Union last year for not submitting an annual report.

"There's a pretty atrocious track record for humanities clubs, unfortunately," says Britney Luimes, Students' Union Humanities representative. "One of my goals that I set for myself this year was to try to revitalize and help clubs in the humanities sustain themselves."

  Editorial: Start saving your pennies, gang!PDF files may take a moment to load

For as long as we can remember, tuition consultation at the University of Calgary has been fairly routine. Every December, university administration has a quick discussion with the Students' Union, asks them how much they'd like to pay and then raises tuition as much as they can. Usually it's a drop in the bucket, an extra five per cent or so matching inflation. This year, it looks to be much, much worse.

There was no revenge for the Dinos over the University of British Columbia Thunderbirds on homecourt last weekend. The last time the men's basketball team met the T-Birds, it was in the national semi-finals at the Canadian Interuniversity Sport Final 8 tournament in Ottawa and the T-Birds ended the Dinos' season with a 79-74 victory.

  T-Birds robbed of game, stuff in CalgaryPDF files may take a moment to load

The University of British Columbia Thunderbirds women's basketball team didn't have the best visit to Calgary on Saturday.

Not only did they leave the city without a victory over the Dinos in Saturday night's game, they left the city without some of their wallets, cell phones and iPods.

While they were playing, someone entered their makeshift locker room in B88 near the Jack Simpson Gymnasium and grabbed valuables, making off with $4,200 worth of goods, according to Campus Security.

  Women's volleyball face tough stretch to end seasonPDF files may take a moment to load

The Dinos didn't win a game last weekend, but head coach Jesse Knight is happy with the way his team is improving at this point in the season. The University of British Columbia Thunderbirds swept the Dinos in straight sets, but there's really no shame in losing to a team that is 15-0, ranked first in the country and has only lost seven sets so far this year.

"I'm a really big believer in power hitters tend to win championships [and] we were able to hold [UBC's] power hitters to low percentages," Knight says.
