Another Model UN conference, another U of C win. Seems logical, but this time we lost.

Traveling to Montreal last weekend, the University of Calgary Model UN lost the conference, but not their good reputation.

"There are two categories in the Model UN conference: big delegations, and small delegations," said Patrick Boyle, Model UN President after losing to Florida State. "This is the first time in six years that we've been big enough to be considered a large delegation."

Instead of milling around the campus in solitude next week, check out Clubs Week from Sept. 16–20. This year's Clubs Week includes new activities to end extracurricular apathy and to bolster the faltering roster of student clubs.

"In previous years, we would only have tables set up in MacEwan Student Centre and the Science Theatres," said Students' Union Clubs Committee Chair Edward Tse. "This year, in addition to that, we wanted to have a stage where clubs can do performances."
