There are multiple programs and services set up specifically for the 1800 Aboriginal students on campus.
Visit the Aboriginal Students' Centre (ASC) or the ASC website to learn what they have to offer. The staff of the ASC annually compiles an extremely helpful student guide, with comprehensive information on campus-wide programs and services.
The ASC provides you with a warm and inviting cultural space where you can share your ambitions with other students, and talk to the Outreach Ambassadors, a team of upper-year students whose goal is to help you become more comfortable in your surroundings.
The ASC now has a Facebook page, where you can see what they do and keep track of upcoming events.
There are also opportunities to meet with Maria and Walter Linklater, who have been Elders at the U of S for approximately 15 years, for soup and bannock on certain dates. Remember to bring your own bowl and spoon, because the ASC is making the move toward global sustainability.
