Now that the new school year has almost begun, it’s time for a whole new crop of CLASSU news and fun stuff! Without further ado, welcome back, and we can’t wait to see all your friendly faces sipping tea in the lounge soon!
First things first, CLASSU is holding our Fall General Elections/Referendum on Thursday, September 21st at 5pm in our lounge, LI 009. We will be voting to adopt our amended constitution, as well as electing six executive members and choosing our Secretary and Treasurer. There will be refreshments and democracy aplenty! If you are interested in running, find nomination forms and more information here.
Next, for any first years/those new to the Department, we will be holding a Classics Orientation on Thursday, September 14th at 1pm, meeting at the Northrop Frye statue just outside Northrop Frye Hall at Victoria College. CLASSU executives will tour new students around related buildings on campus, Lillian Massey (the location of the Classics Department), our CLASSU lounge, and will end by taking any students of CLA160 to St. Mike’s before their class at 2pm. Students will have a chance to speak to upper-year students and some of the department’s faculty—join us for a fun time!
SwagSSU is BACK(SSU)! Missed your chance to order some super #swag Classics Department swag in the spring? Not to worry, we’ve got your back (literally)! If you are interested in ordering a hoodie this semester, or potentially something else, please fill out the interest form found here ASAP! Further incentive to check out the form includes your President modelling a hoodie in what one can only call a Vogue-worthy pose/outfit. Once we have a rough understanding of demand, we will put out real order forms in the coming months. Tell your friends!
Finally, come visit CLASSU at the Clubs Festival on Wednesday, September 5th from 3-7pm in King’s College Circle, and again at the Street Festival on Tuesday, September 12th from 10am-3pm on St. George! We will have buttons, election forms, handouts, and smiling faces!
That is all for now, so enjoy the last dregs of summer before the crawl back to campus!
