SIIE 50/50 DRAW

The weekly 50/50 draw in support of International and Indigenous Education Students is underway again.  There was no winner for this past week’s 50/50 draw (the lucky number was #39), so the jackpot rolls over to another week… hopefully to be close to $100 shared between the winner and the SIIE fundraising next week.  Please remember to add your toonie to the draw for your chance to win and support our traveling students.

NEW SCHEDULE FOR ELC

Recent budgetary pressures have resulted in amended hours for the ELC. We are working on a plan to keep it open as much as possible.

Please check the ELC door for the current schedule. We will, however, be increasing the hours of availability so check back with that sign for ongoing amendments.

Note: If the ELC is closed and you need immediate access, then please ask me – my office is MH 303.

Thank you for your patience while we work through the new schedule.

Ron
