  24/7 Tuition Info: Online and in PersonPDF files may take a moment to load

Do you know how much the University is planning to increase your tuition for the 2003/2004 school year? Do you know if you are in a faculty that has been targeted for differential tuition?

Whether you know the answer to that question or not, you should take a few minutes out of your day to see how it will really effect you- because it will effect everyone! This year's tuition decision is the most significant decision the undergraduates of University of Calgary have ever experienced.

  The path less travelledPDF files may take a moment to load

How many times do you get told by the Students' Union what to do? Every year the su stands on its damn high horse and proclaims to be able to lead you to the promised land of low tuition and better education. Well I don't know about you, but I seem to recall a tuition increase every year no matter what the su rants and raves about.

The su cannot fight the issue of tuition.

Only you can.

  Feed the beastPDF files may take a moment to load

Over 2000 years ago oligarchies in Greek city-states started an experiment we casually call democracy. Although the percentage of total population given the right to vote was small, the experiment allowed for leadership candidates to put their ideas and character to the test of their peers, providing a vessel through which responsible government could emerge.

What a crazy day, two midterms, a paper, and a job interview. What are those strange tables with the computers set up for? Can't be important, screw it.

International week has been organized by the International Student Centre, along with approximately fifteen cultural clubs. A variety of events have been planned to fit every interest you may have.

  Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail ’03PDF files may take a moment to load

It's cold. Walking towards the Science Theatres you notice that something is terribly, terribly wrong. The man so calmly referred to as the hot dog vendor is pawning his wares on unsuspecting frosh. The rock is painted in an outlandish fraternity purple. The university sidewalk sweeper is pleasantly locked in his machine of destruction, doing his best impersonation of Michael Andretti on some form of Berlin speed, manoeuvring dangerously close to your sanity with every pass.

  Learn how to jump through hoops at the academic carnivalPDF files may take a moment to load

The SU View and its corresponding headline is printed without Gauntlet editorial revision, and does not reflect the views of the Gauntlet Publications Society

Now that exams are beginning to take their toll, the effects of coffee are starting to wear off, and the thought of staying up to 4 a.m. studying for an exam doesn't seem unusual, I want to introduce you to some academic services that may help.

Often students are unaware that there are services that can help.

  U of C 101 fights cystic fibrosisPDF files may take a moment to load

The Students' Union decided to take a slightly different approach to social activities this year. Bling Bling, a game created by Shinerama directors at Wilfred Laurier University last year was adopted and moulded to the U of C 101 program in order to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis. The game challenged frosh students and U of C 101 leaders to a strategic and devious game. The nearly 4,000 first year students were divided into eight different groups with almost 500 students per team.

  Rice, discotekas and all things BSDPDF files may take a moment to load

A huge outdoor Diskoteka? What is a Diskoteka? Simply put, it's what we're calling this year's Bermuda Shorts Day Beer Gardens. You will be wowed, dazzled, and hopefully a little sun-cooked. That is if the weather gods deem us worthy. In the next couple hundred words, you will know everything that you need to about BSD this year.
