Welcome to the first S.U.E. blog update of the 2016/17 University of Calgary school year! New students, we are the Society of Undergraduates in Economics here at UofC and there are some great perks to being a member. If you visit us at www.ucalgarysue.com and obtain a $5 membership you will have access to resources such as an exam bank, study groups, and special events!
University can be tough at times, but surrounding yourself with resources for success and a community just like you can make a huge difference. Upholding this community is our goal as an organization. Returning members can attest, we had some great events last year including our annual Industry Night Gala, where members of local firms of a wide variety and students came together to make connections and receive advice for your future in economics. Being a part of the SUE will give you opportunities to better the community around you in a fun and charitable way. The SUE participates in the University Food Drive every year to support local dropin centres. We look forward to organizing these events again this year as well as new unique ones such as a fundraiser party event! Whether you are new to UofC or are well into your Uni experience, we would like to welcome you to the SUE in the best way possible.
As part of our mandate to serve the academic needs of the economic community at the University of Calgary, we are bringing back our mentorship program even bigger and better for a second year. We will also be working throughout the year to improve our online academic resources and exam bank. You can look forward to video resources and links to useful websites that we have found helpful throughout our economics degrees. Our weekly study groups will also be returning, so if you feel like studying with a group of your peers is beneficial feel free to stop by.
We will be present at Campus Expo, Orientation Week, and Clubs Week in September. Look out for us at Campus Expo September 1st to find out in detail what we are really all about. We will also be at O-week to meet with new students and answer all of your questions! Look out for our stand and our big green S.U.E signs during Clubs week September 19th to 23rd to meet us, ask us any questions, or just simply say hello and have a chat! We will be offering the ability to sign up for the SUE right there at the booth as well for your convenience. We will also be organizing a back to school mixer to kick off the year the right way. It’s going to be a great year, and the SUE is here to make it even better!
