Threadwork hosts clothing swap

By Alice Cavanagh

On Oct. 25, OPIRG working group Threadwork held their fifth biannual clothing swap in MUSC. Hosted in partnership with MACGreen, the Swap drew over 70 participants and left organizers with three brimming donation bins for the Canadian Diabetes Association. Threadwork was founded in 2010 and strives to promote critical thinking about the implications of consumerism for the environment, and the community. Core members of the group include Ariel Bader-Shamai, Alice Cavanagh, Isabelle Dobronyi, Alexandra Epp, Scott McDonald, Sophie Roher, and Christina Vietinghoff. The next swap will be held in late second semester.

Enrolment Services unit created

By Nisha Chopra





On Oct. 9, the three different departments of Student Recruitment, Admissions and Financial Aid & Scholarships were put under one umbrella, Enrolment Services.

The intent is to increase the efficiency of the university as a whole. By putting all these services under one banner, the university aims to increase co-ordination between admission offices, faculties and residents.

The biggest change in this initiative is moving Financial Aid and Scholarships under the Enrolment Services banner with the aim to provide funds to students that will prove more effective and valuable to them.

Jock Phippen has been appointed Executive Director of Enrolment Services.
