Welcome to, or welcome back to Huron University College for the 2010/11 year. I know that the start of the year is kind of a crazy time for everyone and that there are a million people and organizations competing for your attention, but I wanted to make sure that you heard from your Students’ Council.
If you’re reading this article it means that you have discovered one of Huron’s many exciting involvement opportunities. The Grapevine is a fantastic source of information for Huron students and has given many budding journalists and photographers an opportunity to develop their skills. If you want to get involved get in touch with this year’s very capable editor Whitney Slightham.
I want to take a moment to recognize a few people who have held the HUCSC together over the summer. I am very proud of the Vice Presidents, Coordinators and Commissioners who have spent the summer working towards making this a great year for Huron. I also need to give a huge shout out to the Orientation Soph Team. Under the leadership of Adam Gawn, Dave Tompkins and Chelsea Smith this group of dedicated individuals were able to create the best Huron O-Week I have ever seen.
I am tempted to spend a lot of time talking about all of the great things that we have planned for the year ahead, and I will spend a few words talking about it. However, I think the more important message here is that we are here to work for you. Our office is always open to new ideas and the wants and needs of Huron students. Do not hesitate to walk in at any time. I am going to make a personal promise to attend as many different Huron events and to get to know as many people around the College as possible. I’ll do my best to find out about what’s going on, but if there is something that you think I should know about, please stop by or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Alright, here’s the part where I tell you a little bit about the things that we have planned for the year. As a stakeholder in the HUCSC you can join our intramural sports teams, a club, a committee, promotions crew, photo crew, yearbook committee or come up with your own way to get involved. Stop by myhuron.ca to find a full list of our involvement opportunities. See the calendar in this issue of the Grapevine for event details.
Okay, so there you have it, the official 2010/11 welcome from the HUCSC. Enjoy the year and don’t hesitate to stop by!
