Hey guys! It’s been a nice and warm summer, and just before the fall season starts I’m here on behalf of UMSigaw to provide an early preview of some of our upcoming activities.
On September 4, 2010, several UMSigaw officers will be featured on CKJS’s PSN (Pinoy Saturday Night) to once again talk about the UMSigaw Bursary. The UMSigaw Bursary is prized at $500 and will be granted to recent high school graduates going into post-secondary education (regardless of the university or college they are going to) and university students going to their second year of university. For more details regarding the bursary, be sure to listen to CKJS’s PSN on September 4, 2010 at 10:30 PM.
Once the university Fall Term begins, UMSigaw will begin recruitment of new members on the week starting September 20 and ending at September 24. Be sure to check out our booth at the University Centre! There will be lots of info posted concerning UMSigaw; details about our group, goals, and further activities.
Finally, the awarding of the bursary will be held on September 25, 2010, 12:00 PM at the Assiniboine Park. It will not just be an awards ceremony; it will also be a picnic, an orientation and the 4th Year Anniversary of the UMSigaw Student Group. This will be a great chance for new members to meet the current members and learn about university life: the courses you can take, tips for studying, and maybe even places to eat at. There will be games and the opportunity to establish new friendships. More details about the picnic will be posted soon at our Facebook page: Um Sigaw or http://www.facebook.com/um.sigaw.
This is just the beginning of another year for UMSigaw. We hope you decide to become a part of our group as every ounce of your energy will go towards helping the next year’s bursary recipient. Let’s make the upcoming school year a successful and exciting one!
