  Tuition: consultation, decision and increase?PDF files may take a moment to load

By the time you read this, the cost to attend this institution of learning next academic year will have gone up, most likely by 3.7 per cent ($141 dollars for 10 classes). Sucks, eh? I know, Jane also feels your pain since she too will be returning next year.

  President White becomes Sugar DaddyPDF files may take a moment to load

Treats with Toby is here. Much like Cookies with Cleary and Slurpees on South, you go to the Students' Union President's office (located in the old clubs area in MacHall 209) on Mondays from 1-2 p.m., Thursdays from 2-3 p.m. or Fridays from 10-11 a.m. Once there, you will be able to meet with the SU president and get treats! Not a bad deal, eh?

  Federal election draws nearPDF files may take a moment to load

At the end of the day, after all the jokes about Joe Clark and his daughter, Jean Chrétien missing a step on the stairs and Stockwell Day's lack of knowledge about Canadian geography are made, we must remember there's a federal election going on and we should be concentrating on the issues.

  It happens every four years... sometimesPDF files may take a moment to load

It's an eclipse, it's the Olympics, it's a leap year... no, it's a federal election! OK, so it's only been three and a half years since the last one in 1997 but Big Daddy J.C. dropped the writ this past Sunday and there is no turning back now.

Whether you like it or not, you will all be inundated with propaganda via TV, radio, print media, telephone calls and doorknockers until you cast your vote Mon., Nov. 27. I call it election mode.

  Two commissioners resign over scandalPDF files may take a moment to load

After only five months in power, the 58th Student Legislative Council (SLC) has driven two of its commissioners to madness and had to ask for their resignations. OK, so that's NOT TRUE but I thought this would get your attention. Although, I am sure it would have made a great story if it actually happened.

  Hostage brain comes to the University of CalgaryPDF files may take a moment to load

CASA: is it just another acronym to you? Why should you even care what they do or have done for you? I mean, after all, as an undergraduate at this university, you are part of CASA.

Well, for all of you cynics out there who think your Students' Union does crap for you, here is something you should check out.

  Don't hurl on BSDPDF files may take a moment to load

Well despite the snow on the ground, spring has sprung. For most of us, the new season means the joy of Bermuda Shorts Day and the stresses of final exams. For some, it means the mixed bag of emotions that accompanies the last semester at university. Needless to say, it is a time of emotion and change.

  Seriously pissed off students need only applyPDF files may take a moment to load

In my last two years of making trouble, I have gone from hell-raising to playing with the devil. I have suffered everything from anxiety to a receding hairline. There is one last thing I need to say.

  License to BitchPDF files may take a moment to load

In the next two weeks you will hear SU hopefuls promising you the sun, the moon and the stars, bribing you with candy, shoving handbills in your face while eating lunch in MacHall, and telling you they are such a superstar. And why? All for the glory of being an elected Students' Union representative. That's what we're telling ourselves, anyway.

  Run for a position, if you darePDF files may take a moment to load

In the next few days some unfamiliar posters will be popping up. Individuals carrying stacks of handbills will approach you. A distracting, but humourous overhead will invade your classes.

Be forewarned. We're asking you to run for a position on the Students' Legislative Council (SLC) or Students' Academic Assembly (SAA).
