Three harassment cases were reported in the Health Sciences Complex in August. In each case, the description of the individual fit the same person. Campus Security issued an alert last week in an attempt to prevent further cases.

  Job here?PDF files may take a moment to load

A recent advertisement, which first appeared on campus bulletin boards around Sept. 9, may not offer students what they bargained for.

The poster offers students the opportunity to work from home selling an unidentified product as an extra source of income. Upon visiting the website and providing their name and e-mail address, a potential employee can purchase a "Decision Package" to help set up their own Internet business.

  Spirituality alive on campusPDF files may take a moment to load

Religion plays an important role in many people's lives. For some students, many decisions are influenced by their religion. For those seeking more spirituality, the U of C offers a Chaplain Centre.

At the Chaplain Centre, chaplains are there for any questions or concerns students may have. While only Christian faith practitioners are available, there is a network for other faiths like Muslim, Sikh, Buddhist, and others.

A year after it was approved by the General Faculties Council, the new A+ grade made its first appearance on course outlines this week.

"The A+ grade is part of a province-wide initiative to have a common grading scale amongst post-secondary institutions," said University of Calgary Registrar David Johnston. "I know that the University of Alberta will be adopting the A+ grade next September and [the University of] Lethbridge is already using it."

  Racist multiculturalismPDF files may take a moment to load

Diversity. Cultural imperialism. Multiculturalism. These are terms we all know and love to throw around, but what do they really mean? In recent years, Western nations have embraced the idea of multiculturalism, which purports that distinct ethnic groups contribute to the diverse mosaics that make up our societies.

  Hockey season looking upPDF files may take a moment to load

If it looks like first-year Dinos women's hockey Head Coach Kevin Brost has an extra jump in his step as the hockey season draws near, it may be for good reason. When talking to Brost about the upcoming hockey season his views are definitely optimistic.  At this time last season the women's hockey team was having trouble finding enough players to fill the roster; at this time there are already 45 trying out to make the squad. Each player is eager to light it up and catch one of the 19 spots on the team.

  Dinos start season in the right directionPDF files may take a moment to load

All things considered, placing a wager on the U of C Dinos women's soccer team to beat their counterparts from Regina was like placing a wager on the certainty of nightfall. There was absolutely no doubt the wins would come; only the margin of victory remained uncertain.

  The Dinos mens soccer teamPDF files may take a moment to load

The most entertaining team on campus is back and ready to go and instead of babbling about "the Dinos hope to get X wins and this will happen if Y steps up," I will instead say why this team is worth watching.

One: Head Coach Andy Gibbs is a riot. This applies to watching Gibbs berate referees from the sidelines, listening to his post-game ramblings or visiting his practice. No other coach on campus has managed to build up this sort of camaraderie with his players and no other coach ever will.

  Dino Women ready to goPDF files may take a moment to load

Will revenge be in the Dinos women's soccer future?

If the first thing you think of when you hear of the Dinos is their loss in the first round of the Canada West Conference finals to a sub par team, then you probably share some bitter feelings with the majority of the team. Revenge would be nice and sounds good, but how will it be achieved with the loss of such key players as Leanne Pelosi, Jessie Norrie, and Laura Stinson? These were three players that brought a lot of experience and leadership to the field.
