On Friday, Sept 25, wear your uAlberta colours, post a (tagged!) selfie, and let’s show we have more school spirit than Campus St.-Jean!

Last year, the Faculty of Physical Education and Recreation stepped up to Augustana in a selfie challenge. They figured they would be able to post more of their students, faculty, staff and alumni in school colours than we could.

They were deeply embarrassed at the results.

This year, Campus St.-Jean risks similar embarrassment as they try a “per capita selfie challenge”… Will Augustana post more selfies in green and gold (and red and black) per student than the University of Alberta’s French language campus? Tune in Friday to find out…

Who has the most U of A school spirit?

On Friday, September 25, we celebrate the fifth annual Green and Gold Day. In the spirit of a little friendly competition, Campus St-Jean challenged Augustana to show which Campus has the greatest school pride and spirit by donning their University of Alberta gear and taking to social media.

Students, alumni, friends, faculty and staff members will post pictures of themselves wearing their UofA gear on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook by using hashtags #ualberta AND #uofa_Augustana.

Wear Green and Gold – add in Augustana Red and Black – or vice versa! Combine our colours and show your pride as part of Augustana within the U of A!

The Students’ Association President with the lower amount of unique posts will wear the other’s colours to a university-wide meeting and display a campus mascot in their offices.

Don’t forget to wear your University of Alberta colours on Friday, September 25 and take to social media to prove it! Like, Share and tell your friends!
