We know the end of winter is officially still weeks away, but there’s no denying that those extra few minutes of daylight each day are starting to add up. If you’re looking for ways to fill them, we’ve got you covered. March is going to be a month full of pride, music, dance, speakers and theatre.
If you find yourself on campus after 5 p.m. during the first week of the month (maybe for the drag show, paint night at Towers Pub, or artist Shawn Tse’s Sharing Circle at the Mitchell Art Gallery), you may come across some slightly lost future students trying to find their way to presentations for Info Session Week. Give them a smile and a hand with directions, if you can.
Congratulations – the week of March 8 marks the halfway point for Winter semester classes! It’s also daylight savings time, so don’t forget to set your clocks ahead an hour on Sunday morning. While you’re working on a to-do list for Sunday, add “Student Research Day.” March 8 is the deadline to apply to share your work (and not just research – papers, performances and artwork count too) at our annual celebration of student discovery.
We know it’s hard to think about going anywhere this summer when you’re knee-deep in assignments, but if travelling and earning credit at the same time sounds good to you, stop by the Education Abroad Info Session on March 11 (there’s another one on March 24).
If you’re feeling the pinch and really need a late-night cram session, plan to spend the evening at the library on March 19. There will be PAWSS dogs, snacks and help from librarians on hand to get you caught up (or get ahead).
Even if you stuck it out until 1 a.m. at the library, you still have lots of time to rest up and get yourself to Merienda (teatime) with Eugenio Salas in the Mitchell Art Gallery on March 20 (it doesn’t start until 3 p.m.).
If guitar is your jam, make sure to set aside some time on Sunday, March 22 to check out the Guitar Band Concert. Maybe it will inspire you to pick up an electric or acoustic and make learning to play your new goal. This goal-setting workshop hosted by Sport and Wellness on Monday might help (it’s really focused on setting goals for a healthy lifestyle, but skills transfer, right?).
You don’t want to miss our theatre students in action in Legally Blonde The Musical (March 25 to April 4). They’re amazing. Rumour has it that at least one PAWSS dog has a cameo in the show. You’ve got to go!
And speaking of PAWSS dogs, they’ve scheduled some post-spin class puppy playtime on March 31 for Pups ‘N Pedals. How cute is that?
