After 19 years of paper and cash, the Used Bookstore has finally bought a computer.

To improve the service of the Used Bookstore, the Students' Legislative Council has approved two major developments. Within the next semester, the Used Bookstore will move onto the ground floor of MacEwan Student Centre along with the Copy Centre. The new retailer will be called Bound and Copied, and is one of the last phases of the ongoing redevelopment of the student centre.

  A Thank-You From the Students' UnionPDF files may take a moment to load

To 99 per cent of students out there, thank-you. To those of you who visit our establishments to have a good time and socialize, to watch a band play, to have a drink or two and cut it up on the dance floor, to hang out with friends and kick back after a long day of classes, thank you.

  What the hell, another election?PDF files may take a moment to load

In case you haven't noticed, there are about 18 different people running around campus putting up cheesy posters, talking about what's best for you, and telling you how great they are. Ah, democracy, can't get any better unless of course you've been acclaimed! But for those who have to endure the overrated democratic process, the fun has just begun.

  An SU BBQ for the clubsPDF files may take a moment to load

We have all had those days at work that cause us to smell for days, our eyes to water, a few burns on our hands, our clothes ruined, and smile that just will not go away. Well, perhaps not quite all of us. For a few of us elected types here in the Students' Union, we get two opportunities for this kind of experience. For one reason or another, many of us jump at the chance.

There comes a time where all U of C students come together to celebrate the challenge of their last eight months.

  The Kobyashi Maru:PDF files may take a moment to load

We should be proud.

Entering this year we were faced with the Kobyashi Maru, the unwinnable scenario. It was stated to us that differential tuition and maximum tuition hikes were a fait accompli, nothing we could do would stop it. We found ourselves at a crossroads. As students, did we accept the assumptions of the administration, put our tails between our legs and cower away? Or did we accept the test of character, stick by our principals and dig in for a long fight.

What does the su do for you?

In case you haven't been paying attention for the last few months, there's a very important tuition decision coming up. The University of Calgary's Board of Governors will decide how much tuition to charge students next year and this decision will affect you, and future generations of students at the U of C.
