Become part of the SA’s Partners for Life team
Date Posted: October 17, 2017
Hello All! Did we enjoy our first month back? No? Well, don’t complain too much. The rest of the year is still to come.
What is coming this semester you may wonder. Well, let me tell you about some of the stuff that the SA has coming up:
Partners for Life Challenge
Earlier this month, you saw a group of dedicated volunteers at both campuses booking appointments for Canadian Blood Services. Can’t get to the donation clinic on your own? The Life Bus is coming to campus! While the October bus is fully booked, spaces are available on the November 23 Life Bus. Book your appointment at the SA’s Main Office.
Also, did you know that SARDC has a goal of collecting 800 donation this year? Follow these steps to join our challenge:
If you donate, register for Students’ Association of Red Deer College: visit https://blood.ca/en/blood/join-your-organization Use the Partner ID Number: REDD011471 (four letters, six numbers) This is a one-time registration. Once registered, your past and future donations will automatically count toward the Students’ Association of Red Deer College. Invite your friends and family to donate with our team!
Mental Health Week
From October 30 to November 3, the focus will be on mental health. Each day will bring different activities and themes designed to help students de-stress, relax, and thrive!
Keep watch on social media for the announcement of the first meeting of Issues Committee. This committee is chaired by the VP Operations. There are many issues and concerns students bring forward each year to the Students’ Association. It is the responsibility of this group to identify and respond to student concerns and campus safety issues. They will identify strategies to resolve issues and forward these recommendations to the Executive and Students’ Association Councils. Any student may sit on this committee.

I will leave you now with a joke:
A horse walks into a bar and orders a beer. The bartender asks the horse “Are you a talking horse?”
The horse answers, “I don’t think I am.” The horse disappears in a cloud of smoke.
Rene Descartes was a 17th Century philosopher who theorized, through the use of methodological skepticism, “I think therefore I am”.
But if I told you that first, I’d be putting Descartes before the horse.
