  Election time and student actionPDF files may take a moment to load

Well, it is election time again; On November 22, 2004 Alberta will be voting to elect a new provincial government and students may be asking themselves: what is the point? Alberta has had the same government for 30 some years and unfortunately, for University of Calgary students, the provincial Tories haven't been friendly to our institution, at least not in the last ten years.

  USRI--fill it out!PDF files may take a moment to load

Every year at the end of the semester every student is given the opportunity to reflect back on the courses they have been taking through the Universal Student Rating of Instruction. The purple scan-tron form that you fill in is much more than a trivial little survey, in fact for professors and the university it is as important as your own transcript.

  Tuition, Budget Cuts, Fee increases... and all that other Bull-$#@!PDF files may take a moment to load

With another round of maximum tuition hikes on the way, combined with the latest news of university-wide budget cuts, undergrads should be feeling in a fairly un-agreeable mood as of late. I mean honestly, sometimes it's all enough to make you want to slam your hand in a waffle iron. Why-oh-why does it seem that our beloved university can never get its act together and just simply stop screwing the students? Do they really hate us all this much?

  You don't need alcohol to get laidPDF files may take a moment to load

Every school year, hundreds of students come back to the university with the intention of getting back into their education and enjoying the benefits of a post-secondary social life. There are many nights when the reason of why you are here in school becomes blurred between becoming a better citizen in society and drinking with your friends to impress that special someone. Here at the SU, we understand that conflict.

This past June the Board of Governors dissolved its Petitions Committee, and established the Student Discipline Appeal Committee to handle student appeals to the Board. What will this change mean for students?

  What a difference planning can makePDF files may take a moment to load

When the 62nd Student Legislative Council was inaugurated last May one of the first things identified as a key weakness in the organization of the Students' Union was a lack overall purpose and direction. For years the SU has survived (and in some areas even thrived) on the bare minimum of future planning. This trend has been called the "nature of the beast" as every year the council is purged of its executive council and replaced with a new one.
