  Campus crime, one last timePDF files may take a moment to load

Random nonsense added to the usual theft on campus after a non-student was encouraged by friends/booze to plunge into the pool fully-clothed, a man attempted to propose marriage to an athlete training in the Olympic Oval and a motorist took down a barricade erected two years ago by crashing into it.

In January, a non-student who was staying in residence ran into the Aquatic Centre, climbed up to the seven-metre diving board and jumped into the water, all without bothering to remove his socks.

  Ski club skating on thin icePDF files may take a moment to load

The University of Calgary Ski Club has been having some fun lately--perhaps a little too much--putting the club in danger of being unsanctioned if they break the rules next year.

In October they violated university policy by holding a pub crawl for students, and recently took a Gauntlet feud public when they wrote "Fuck the Gauntlet" on the rock in front of MacEwan Student Centre. The possible consequences for their behaviour include community service, a loss of office space and even being unsanctioned.

  Reasonably successfulPDF files may take a moment to load

Their songs spewing discontent and misery, most screamo bands are left unnoticed by the masses, but continue to drudge on hoping that one day success will come. Most quit, others toil in obscurity, while a select few actually make it. The Reason are one of these bands, but the only way they could really get noticed was by breaking genre stereotypes; they gave up the angst.

  SU Reviews: Shannon O'Connor, VP academicPDF files may take a moment to load

As vice-president academic, Shannon O'Connor is in charge of four academic commissioners as well as the 13 faculty representatives who make up the Students' Academic Assembly.

  SU Reviews: Eric Jablonski, VP eventsPDF files may take a moment to load

Eric Jablonski has a large, blue vibrating dildo in a pint glass on the edge of his desk. The pint glass is much like the one on my desk, except for the contents. Mine contains pens. Jablonski's contains a dildo.

  SU Reviews: Julie Labonte, VP externalPDF files may take a moment to load

All in all, vice-president external Julie Labonte had a good year. Her strongest qualities were in lobbying, which is good as it is the number one priority for the external position.

While Labonte fulfilled her job description, she also took on extra projects that may not have been beneficial for the Students' Union as a whole.
