Hello everyone, I hope that you all had a fantastic holiday full of fun, food, and the inevitable stomachache that comes from eating too much food. As a few welcome back notes, remember that we at CSUS are here to help you. If you have any questions about coding, school, or other things that you think we might know (such as the full lyrics to Let It Go), don’t hesitate to ask. For the next reminder, remember to keep the room in as good condition when you leave as it was when you entered. Small messes can build up over time, and although we have an exec to help keep things tidy, every bit of assistance is appreciated.

CSUS Renovations

First off in terms of news, a team of architects and planners are looking to renovate the undergrad spaces. We decided to set up a poll to see what all of you think should be changed if we get selected as one of of the places to renovate. Although we can’t get a waterslide installed, I’m sure that there are some pretty interesting things that we can do such as expanding the PI lab (that thing is tiny) or adding some cool furniture to study on.

CSUS Pizza and Board Game Night

The next CSUS meet up night is almost here! On January 25 at 6:00 pm, join us for pizza, board games, and good conversation. If you are worried that your food budget won’t make it this much, or you want to use that money for a new video card, come on out and take advantage of the free food. As an additional bonus, it will be a level up event. If you don’t know what that means, then let me explain. If you come, you will be given a code that you can enter in at https://www.ucalgary.ca/levelup. Once you do, you have to opportunity to win some fabulous prizes. Additionally, the more points that you earn, the better the prizes! Make sure to keep a lookout for the poster at the event, as the prizes can get quite interesting (one year I got a blanket… it is very comfy).

Auxiliary Executive Opportunity

Finally, we are looking for people to apply to become Auxiliary Execs. What are these you ask? Well, let me tell you a story how your life can be flipped, turned upside down.

  • For winter semester they will provide a supporting body to current exec team with the big Hackathon coming up.
  • This will also serve as training for the aux-execs to succeed current execs.
  • Each aux-exec will shadow an exec and do tasks with exec
  • This isn’t to say the aux-execs are below current execs but it’s more of preparing for the passing of the torch from master to student
  • THE AUX EXECS WILL HAVE ALL THE PRIVILEGES CURRENT EXECS HAVE, WHICH IS MAINLY ROOM ACCESS (exception being access to finance accounts carried by VP Finance and President).

January to beginning/mid March the current execs CSUS will be in a state as described above, but after that fact the AUX-EXECS WILL BE RUNNING THE SHOW WITH THE CURRENT EXECS GIVING WISDOM WHEN ASKED 

If you want a chance to stretch your executive muscles, give this a shot. It would be good work experience, and a way to get more involved in this great environment that we have in CSUS. If you are interested, make sure to send us your name and UCID by email to CSUS@ucalgary.ca, and we will add you to the list of people interested!

Contact Email: CSUS@ucalgary.ca

And that is all of the time that we have for tonight/this morning/whatever time it is when you read this. All always, good luck with your assignments, and we at CSUS hope that you have a great semester!
