  SU View: Tuition talk with the Board of GovernorsPDF files may take a moment to load

As finals approach, I thought it would be only appropriate to provide a "Study Fact Sheet" about our strategy on Tuition Consultation.

The Students' Union at the University of Calgary opposes any increase in tuition. It is the responsibility of our government to support our province's learners and supporting our post-secondary education system is an investment that must be made now.

  SU View: Alcohol Awareness WeekPDF files may take a moment to load

The Students' Union Alcohol Awareness Week is coming next week, with events on Tue., Oct. 9 and Wed., Oct. 10.  

Past Alcohol Awareness Weeks have been focused on presenting the message that all alcohol is evil and must be avoided at all costs. Taking the approach that alcohol is a dangerous drug that leads only to bad situations has made Alcohol Awareness events very negative and not engaging for students.

There's a growing trend in Canada--environmental awareness.
