  Stop playing games with abortionPDF files may take a moment to load

I have a confession to make. A couple of years ago, I stopped to listen to what Campus Pro-Life had to say at their annual Genocide Awareness Project display. Over the course of about half an hour, I was treated to an articulate and convincing argument as to why Canada needs abortion laws.

Hidden on the sixth floor of the Arts Parkade are fully functioning arts spaces and classrooms, computer labs and lounging areas. Not many students are aware of the existence of this floor, and fewer still make the journey up. Out of this obscurity, a new University of Calgary art exhibition has been born.

  Non-sanctioned BSD after-parties agreed great by allPDF files may take a moment to load

The University of Calgary campus was abuzz early this week as students prepared for the annual tradition of unaffiliated BSD after-parties.

Though the nightclub-run events, not involved with the university or Students' Union in any way, all sound amazing, students are forced to agonize over the choice of which bar they will continue to consume liquor at.

[Story originally published in 2005]

Bermuda Shorts Day began in 1961, when The University of Alberta, Calgary branch, was still on the sait campus. Freshman and Gauntlet Editor-in-Chief of the following publishing year Alan Arthur, who had just bought his first pair of gaudy Bermuda Shorts, wanted to celebrate spring. So he wrote on the main hall blackboard: Tomorrow is Bermuda Shorts Day. Everyone wear Bermuda Shorts.

The faculty of nursing's simulation lab is set to acquire two new high-fidelity mannequins for students to poke, prod and practice on, thanks to recently announced funding from the province.

A $300,000 grant from the ministry of advanced education and technology will be used to enhance the University of Calgary's Clinical Simulation Learning Centre, which for the past two years has allowed student nurses the opportunity to practice their clinical skills before going out into the real world.

I'm a sucker for tradition. At the end of every school year, the Gauntlet Editor-in-Chief takes the opportunity to regale readers about life as a student nearing (hopefully) the end of their academic career. What have I learned in the past five years? That it is important to stand up for what you believe in -- the regret of sitting idly is much worse than the consequences of being unpopular. Dedication, hard-work and respect are all just as important as (and in the long-term probably more so than) grades or paycheques.

The Morning Benders were to perform their first show ever in Japan at the beginning of March, but it was cancelled when the horrific tsunami hit Japan. It was a significant show for the group -- frontman Chris Chu, who was born in Japan, was looking forward to performing at home for the first time. In response to tragic disaster, the band released the Japan Echo EP, a collection of unreleased B-sides and remixes by industry heavyweights like Twin Sister and RAC. A hundred per cent of the proceeds go to relief efforts in Japan.
