This is a call to all those students who care, all those students who think they can make a difference, to those clubs that want to get the word. This is an invitation to all those students from the ski club to the animal rights club to the debate club. This is a summons to those students who want to get involved and learn about the University of Calgary. It's also a call to all those students who love beer.

Hold up, what? Every Monday from 4:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. Molson Canadian jugs will be $6.25!

Parents hoping to have their concerns over recent fee increases heard by the University Child Care Centre Board of Directors received little comfort at a Town Hall meeting on Tue., March 12.
