Help Wanted!

Our colleagues at Athletics are looking for two students to assist with the registration table for the Dinos football game on Saturday October 1st. Students will be working just in front of the Konica Minolta Suite at the stadium (on the southeast side near the ticket office). A table will be set up along with the RSVP list for you to provide tickets to those attending and allowing them access up to the suite.

The time commitment would be from 2:30 PM - approximately 6:00 PM though the length will be weather-dependent as to how many people are coming up to the suite at various times.

This is a first-come first-serve call out so please email Shahla back right away if you are able to commit!

FYI: September & October Calendars

Faculty of Environmental Design (EVDS) Presentation Re-Cap

Did you know that BLOCK WEEK was invented by the Faculty of EVDS?

Dean Nancy Pollock-Ellwand and Leitha Cosentino, Director of Development, EVDS were our first faculty guest speakers of the semester! We were so pleased that they took the time to visit the SCP and speak about their small yet mighty faculty. It was great to learn about the ways in which EVDS students have been involved with the city of Calgary, how they are truly interdisciplinary and have integrated with other faculties, and the inspiring approach they are taking to evidence-based learning design.

If you missed the presentation, then please visit the links to watch the dean's talk!
