Happy Wednesday! This issue of the Weekly includes information on upcoming workshops (including the Emerging Leaders Program and Workshops in Building Capacity for Reconciliation, which have deadlines today)! If you’re looking to get involved in other ways, why not join a choir or take music lessons? Or attend one of our many upcoming events, including the Ravine Block Party tomorrow night, meditation every Thursday at noon, Green & Gold day this Friday, or some of the performances at the Bailey Theatre this week. Curious about what other students have been learning in their FYS and three-week classes? Attend some of their poster presentations next Tuesday (the last day of class already!).
Have a great week!
- Today is the All for U Orientation sessions for new students! We hope you have a great time getting to know your peers and learn something valuable that will carry you through your entire degree!
- All of the deadlines! Today is the last day to apply for the Emerging Leaders program, as well as the Workshops in Building Capacity for Reconciliation.
- Friday, September 13 is Green & Gold Day. Join the UAlberta community in celebrating the people who make the U of A the vibrant, involved and innovative community that it is—students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Wear your green and gold and UAlberta swag and stop by the photo booth in the bookstore to take some pics and grab some goodies…and don’t forget to tag #UAlberta.
- Curious to see what students have been doing in their FYS and 3-week classes? Stop by some of these presentations on the final day of classes: Tuesday, September 17!
- Judy Liao’s PED 266 class, Gender and Sport in Physical Activity, will be presenting their posters of a “hidden history” in sport history (including lesser-known female athletes) starting at 9 am in the Faith & Life lounge.
- Geoff Dipple’s FYS course, First Beer Seminar, will also be doing poster presentations in the forum at the central fireplace from 2:00 to 4:30 pm. The topics include alcohol and university in an international context, the socially responsible marketing of alcohol, the portrayal of alcohol in film and literature (and its impact), cultural differences in drinking and their significance, and alcohol and crime.
- You might also spot a 3D printed dinosaur in the forum next week…if you’re curious about that, ask a student from Joseph Wiebe’s FYS course, Dinosaurs, from Aardonyx to Zuniceratops, or talk to lab technician David King!
The world’s oldest piece of chewing gum is over 9,000 years old.

She added that the sale would include: lots of household items, i.e. bathroom, kitchen, bedroom. Furniture such as a round wooden table with pedestal legs, shelving, computer desk, etc. Some tools and outside stuff like plant pots, ornaments, outdoor furniture, and so much more. Too much to list. Anyone setting up a home or students would certainly find a lot of value here. If the weather is rainy or windy, it will be moved to the next scheduled day.
