Alcohol policy at Cellar Pub and Grill and Social Club

St. Thomas University Students’ Union president Husoni Raymond met with University of New Brunswick’s associate vice-president of student services Mark Walma to discuss UNB’s alcohol policy. The policy limits the amount of alcohol a person can consume at the Cellar Pub and Grill and the Social Club. Raymond said STU students, who are affected by the policy, and STUSU weren’t consulted on the policy. Raymond said he sent an email explaining why he should get a seat on the alcohol policy review committee but didn’t get a seat. However, the committee said when the next draft is completed, UNB will consult with Raymond and with University of New Brunswick Student Union president Craig Fernandez to get feedback on it.

Academic Assistance line

Clubs and Societies

Campus Trust

St. Thomas University Students’ Union president Husoni Raymond said the STUSU has a limited amount of surplus for the campus trust, which funds services such as the dental plan. Raymond said this is because the STUSU had to cover a deficit as the predicted enrolment for the plan decreased because the university removed people last minute who didn’t pay any fees.

Drug kits
