Trust me, I can’t believe this either.
I mean, is it real? Is it all really real? Are two things that I’ve worked hard towards become possible through LU? I THINK SO!
Let’s take a trip down memory lane – a lonely December night, students from rez congragated into the Fraser auditorium to see people who had some kind of talent perform for their liking. And there I was, rocking out my stand up comedy. Since then, I like to think my comedy has taken off, but now it’s back to LU. The SGA is holding a comedy competition, prizes for the funniest comedian! Anyone who can I invite you, February 8th at 6pm in the Student Centre. Seriously. Check it out.
As if that’s not enough, with getting involved in the SGA the VP Student Issues, Ms. Casey Lalonde has invited me to The Spirit of the North Conference, a get together where we discuss issues of living and studying in the North. This may sound boring, but to an enthusiastic first year Sociology student, I’ve struck gold. But not only with this, turns out the SGA and CFS (Canadian Federation of Students) also sends students to conferences for free, that’s right, FOR FREE. Who knew?
On the frontier of everything else going on at LU, we’re officially running a 30 Hour Famine campaign, a fundraiser where students pledge money and fast for 30 hours to raise money for food, to be distributed across the world. Having supported this cause for the last 3 years, I’m more than thrilled to be doing it again for a 4th. It’s happening during out Sustainability Week, another great campaign.
Finally, as promised SKYL is set to go full throttle, our first meeting being Monday January 31st at 7pm in the Student Centre. Turns out I have all liberty to post posters (they still need approval to be on peg boards) and advertise, and the student centre is a pretty open place.
Doing all this and keeping on top of homework is still happening. Now, to find more time for the gym….
