Inspirational people come in all shapes, sizes and genders – but with International Women’s Day coming up on March 8th, 2019 we want to help illuminate the glories of women past, present and future.

With the theme of #BalanceforBetter, this year’s IWD2019 is all about celebrating women’s achievements throughout history while calling for a more equal world at the same time. To join in on the festivities, we at the SAMHC office will be hosting an interactive display designed to revel in the wonder of the incredible women at Medicine Hat College and beyond!

Running for a three-day blitz from March 6th to March 8th,  our display will take students, staff and faculty on a historical journey through the eyes of the women who helped write the pages of history. Alongside the archival anecdotes of some of the most influential ladies that have walked the planet, we will have space for those on campus to write the praises for the women in their present lives that share their light, joy, strength and bravery daily.

Everyone is welcome and we hope that together we can create change to make a world that is balanced for the better!

 

 

 

Places to Study Outside of the Library

It’s that time of year again, the semester is wrapping up and exams are looming. In case, you’re preparing for some all-night study sessions and the library hours aren’t going to cut it, here is a list of spaces on campus, accessible 24hrs a day, worth camping out in.

We rated the spaces around campus with 4 main criteria in mind:

  1. Access to electrical outlets,
  2. Noise level,
  3. Seating comfort, and
  4. Distance to facilities (bathrooms and vending machines).

STRESS LESS

It’s a new year and for both our new and returning students, the Fall semester can be a time of challenges and triumphs. To make sure that your year starts off right, we have a few tips from our VP Internal, Evelyn Schottner and our Health and Wellness Coordinator, Jaycene Mock.

Hi Everyone! Evelyn here – I’m your VP Internal. You can come visit me to help with all sorts of academic issues if they arise for you. I’m here to help guide you through academic appeals, discrimination issues, and general student rights. I really believe that the College should be a place where all students feel safe and included, and that’s really what my position — and the Students’ Association in general — is all about! I also want to remind students really quick that there is an important date coming up: November 21st, 2018 is the withdraw date. This means that this is the last day to withdraw from a class and have it show up as a “W” on your transcript instead of a failing grade. I would highly recommend talking to your academic advisor prior to this date to weigh out your options if you have a class or classes that you’re struggling in. Other than that, feel free to pop into the SAMHC office or email me at SA_Internal@mhc.ab.ca with any questions you might have! Have a great year everyone!

Changing gears just a little! Jaycene here, your friendly neighborhood Health and Wellness Coordinator. The Fall semester is just kicking off and already I’ve seen a few very stressed-out students. Taking care of yourself can sometimes fall off to the bottom of your priority list when life gets busy but reminder: self-care should always be a priority! As cheesy as it sound, it’s true that you can’t take care of anything if you have not been taking care of yourself. This looks different for each of us, but below is one of my favorite infographics from the masters at Buzzfeed! If you have anymore questions or need anything, again please feel free to pop into the SAMHC office or email me at SA_HWC@mhc.ab.ca. Also come out to our Stress Less Events on September 11th and 12th in the Den 😀
