Your Students' Association is bringing the Blitz

Date Posted: September 9, 2013

Are you ready? In fact, you probably aren’t!

Whether you are a new or returning student, whether you are trying to take in the last remnants of summer or you’re nervous about your first year of college, or a multiplicity of other reasons, you probably aren’t ready for the first week.

Well, that’s where we — your Students’ Association — come in. We have a fun-filled three-day extravaganza of activities, known as Blitz Week, to help you begin your college experience! 

Whether you’re a new or returning student, this year is new, bright and shiny, and Blitz Week is about pulling you out of your comfort zone, helping you find a brand new one here at RDC and getting you to “go with the flow, and flow with the glow!”

The Blitz Week fun began August 26 with the Faculty Association Hot Dog Lunch for trades students continued with Rez Fest with the SA August 29 and the CUPE Light Breakfast at the Donald School of Business August 30. The fun continues Wednesday, Sept. 4 as we head into the second week of Blitz!

Blitz Week Part 2
Sept. 4 is a big day at RDC. Yes, it is the first day of classes and all that but it’s also the first really big day of Blitz Week. Activities kick off with the Shaw Communications Light Breakfast at 9 a.m. by the SA Stairs. Stop by for a muffin, fruit, juice, coffee or tea.

Blitz fun continues at 12:30 p.m. in the Forum Courtyard. Stop by and try your luck in the Wind Tunnel or at Roulette or check out the SA Ball Pit. If you are hungry, stop by the Servus Credit Union Taco In A Bag Lunch.

Thursday, Sept. 5 is another day Blitz-full of fun. Things get going at 12:30 p.m. with the Chartwells Hot Dog Lunch in the Forum Courtyard . There will also be lots of games, fun and activities — including our SA Obstacle Course plus Roulette and the Ball Pit.

The final day of Blitz promises to be a memorable one. The day’s activities kick off at 12:30 p.m. with the Bikram Yoga Taco Wrap Lunch in the Forum Courtyard. Once you’ve eaten (or maybe before) take a run at the Bungee Run or play one last game of Roulette.

litz Week winds up with the Glow Party in the Far Side Bar & Grill. This is your chance to “go with the flow, and flow with the glow!”

We, at the Students’ Association, hope that Blitz Week helps smooth your transition into or back into life at Red Deer College. If you have any questions, please contact Jaime Miranda, your VP Student Life at 403-342-3200.
