Spring is here, love is in the air, and Student Life in Chilliwack wants to remind students about safe sex practices. Yes, it may seem like the content of elementary school curriculum but condom use is an important life skill. That’s why on Wednesday, March 23, all UFV students are invited to Chilliwack Campus Centre for an 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. event entitled Fresh Romance. Student Life will be serving up free ice cream sundaes to all students who bring their own banana and show that they can properly apply a condom to the phallic fruit. This may seem difficult, but Student Life is assuring you, the amount of ice cream and delicious toppings will make it worth the effort.
International Women’s Day will be recognized at the Trades & Technology Centre (TTC) with the Student Union Society (SUS) on Tuesday, March 15. Our Chilliwack campus librarians will be providing tea, cookies, and ample knowledge about the women’s movement through the years. Amara, Debbie, and Kieran of SUS, and Desmond of Student Life, will be hosting a celebration of the hard-working women at TTC with lunch, contests, and prizes.
Student Life and Chilliwack Community Involvement Club are joining the UFV International Department in their annual Canadian Cancer Society Daffodil Campaign at the end of March.
