- The Augustana Faculty Awards and Financial Aid Application deadline for returning students is April 30! It’s quick, easy, and painless—complete it online before it’s too late!

Find both at https://www.ualberta.ca/augustana/services/academic/afa/apply.
- ECO Move Out runs today until April 30! EMO takes place at all UAlberta residences to make it easier for students to recycle or donate unwanted items. Items are being collected in the Dish (Ravine Residences) and in the entrance of FYD.

- See safety happening? Snap a photo and send it to the Environment, Health & Safety office on North Campus—they’re looking for images of people working (and learning!) safely. Maybe it’s that coworker with the neon lab coat or the student who climbs a ladder like a pro…snap a photo and send it our way! Photos will be part of a travelling exhibit for Safety and Health Week (May 6 to 11) and you could win big! Contest runs until May 1. Details here.
- All returning students can now register for the 2019/20 term in BearTracks! If you need help, book an appointment with an Advisor or find them at one of their pop-up times (see the poster below). Register before you leave for the summer to ensure you get the courses you need!
- Are you interested in helping First Year Students move into residence next year? Join the ASA’s O-Team, a service the ASA organizes to help move in First Years into dorms to help organize and reduce traffic the day of move in. It is happening August 25, however, volunteers are able to move in early on the 24. This year we are providing two shifts for volunteers throughout the day, with the first from 10 am to 1 pm, and the second from 1 pm to 4 pm. If you want to sign up for both, feel free! Lunch (caf lunch bags) and dinner (pizza) are provided throughout the day. You will also get a volunteer t-shirt, and there are chances to win prizes at the end of the day! Make sure to sign up using the google form. If you have any questions, email Jennae at email@example.com.
