March not only brings the promise of spring, it is also a time when the campus starts to come alive with a number of activities taking place. This month is a great opportunity to start shaking off those winter doldrums.
We are welcoming hundreds of graduate students to share their research with a conference being organized by the Graduate Students’ Association.
Aboriginal Achievement Week brings with it many different learning and sharing opportunities. There will be many opportunities to see some incredible speakers, students will get to showcase their work, language sessions will be provided, and there is even an opportunity to learn how to make bannock.
And, finally, once again we are hosting the CIS men’s hockey University Cup – a chance to come out and cheer on our Huskies to victory!
The theme that links these three different opportunities is the level of student involvement needed to make them happen. It never ceases to amaze me the diversity of our student body and their ability to dedicate themselves to their studies and their extra-curricular activities. It is this holistic student experience that is an important one that a university like ours can offer, and I applaud all students who take these opportunities to give back to their community in such a meaningful way.
