Let the games begin!
The 1998 inter-faculty games, organized by the University Students' Council and Campus Recreation begin tonight and run until Sunday.
Teams from faculties will compete in sports such as basketball, badminton, volleyball, hockey and waterpolo at various locations around campus, USC sports commissioner Cynthia Bonn said. She added there will be an information booth set up in the atrium of the University Community Centre all weekend with a schedule of events.
The opening ceremonies will take place Saturday night at The Spoke.
The University Students' Council's proposed bus pass will be one item up for discussion at a Campus and Community Affairs Committee meeting on Monday.
USC President Ryan Parks will make a presentation to the committee, which is a sub-committee of the Board of Governors. There will also be a presentation made against the bus pass by a member of the community.
In addition, Parks will make a presentation on non-tuition-related student fees and Lucy Pinheiro, USC VP-finance will speak on USC operations. The meeting is open to the public and begins at 5 p.m. in the Great Hall of Somerville House.
To honour female struggles, the Women's Issues Network, in conjunction with Brescia College and the Sexual Assault Clinic of London, will host an all-day event to commemorate International Women's Day.
International Women's Day falls on Sunday this year, but all events will take place Saturday beginning in Victoria Park at 11 a.m. and then move to the London Central Library at noon.
Brescia College will also be hosting an evening event beginning at 7:30 p.m. in St. James Auditorium. The theme will be "Women and Work: Celebrating Diversity" which will centre around a spoken word performance with Zena Lord and Junia Mason of Last Nerve Productions.
"It's a day when we can celebrate what other women have gone and done before us," said Western's women's issues commissioner Gillian Judkins. "This is a day to acknowledge being women and to enjoy being ourselves."
The Model United Nations Society is hosting "Specialized Agencies on Global Events" at Huron College this weekend in which 60 delegates from Western and several other schools are expected to attend, said John Bayliss, president of the society. The event is an imitation of a real UN setting.
"We wanted to get Western students involved in organizing a conference of this size," he said.
SAGE '98 takes place today from 2 to 10 p.m., tomorrow from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
