    Call for student actors

    STUSU is calling for students interested in a new employment opportunity. Student-actors are needed for the making of a promotional video for STU athletics. The advertisement is set to be filmed this Friday and will see students train and try out for the role of mascot Tommy the Tomcat. The video will also feature STU’s sports teams and athletic facilities. Those interested in auditioning for a role as one of the wannabe mascots should email STU athletics marketing and event coordinator Eric Moffat at emoffatt@stu.ca.

    Possible changes to off-campus budget 

    A change to off-campus funding was proposed at the STUSU meeting on Thursday. A $2,000 off-campus student life fund was used to pay for $1,200 worth of off-campus welcome week materials this month. Vice-president of administration Ben Graham, and a number of other representatives, voiced a desire to designate Welcome Week expenses to the off-campus fund permanently. The committee decided it was wise to wait until off-campus representatives are elected and present at a meeting to table the idea. The off-campus fund normally runs a large surplus, and the fund does not come from STUSU, so the union does not get to carry surpluses over into the next year. Vice-President Education Sam Titus said in his two years as an off-campus representative, the most the union spent on off-campus students was around $500.
