Welcome back

The Concordia Student Union executives would like to wish you a happy new year and a warm welcome back to campus! We hope that you got to unwind properly before hitting the books again and are looking forward to another semester full of new and exciting things here at the CSU. We’re happy to be back and are ready to give you the best semester yet. There’s a lot going on this semester, with something happening for everyone.

We would like to offer our warmest welcome to our new Concordia students. Our campuses can be a maze at first, but rest assured, we offer campus maps and free agendas at the CSU office on the 7th floor of the Hall building and the first floor of the SC at Loyola.

We are here to represent you in all aspects of student life: everything from academic representation and fighting rising tuition fees to hosting some fabulous parties. Our doors are always open to respond to student needs and we always remain accessible. Feel free to drop by anytime in person or on our web site, csu.qc.ca.

There are many ways to get involved in your union: volunteer, join a committee or club, apply for a job, or attend an event. Student life extends beyond the classroom and we are there every step of the way.

We would like to point out that Winter Orientation begins on Jan. 17 with activities all over campus. Numerous events will be taking place this month: Former Governor General the Rt. Hon. Adrienne Clarkson will be speaking in H-110 on Jan. 13, and Loyola on Ice will take you outdoors the first week of February. This is a great occasion for both new and returning students to get a chance to meet other members of the Concordia community, relax a little and, most importantly, have a good time.

Last semester was exciting and now we are looking forward to working together again this semester to make it another success and take the CSU to new heights.
