Head Shave for Cancer

The Regina Engineering Student?s Society is hosting a fundraiser for the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency called ?Head Shave for Cancer?. Engineering students and faculty members are volunteering as ?head shavees? to lose their locks for cancer donations. Each head shavee places a value on his or her hair, and when the fundraisers, as a team, raise the amount each head shavee chooses, he or she will participate in the head shave. Funds are raised cumulatively, meaning once the total amount raised (from all fundraisers) reaches the value the head shavee chose, he or she will be shaved. E.g. once $100 in total is raised, Jordan will participate in the head shave. Once $250 in total is raised, Lone will participate in the head shave.

Dinner with the Dean

Tonight the RESS Council had dinner with Dr Paitoon to get up to date on changes the faculty is making, and for us to share any concerns that we as students currently have. We shared concerns about ENIN 233 and Laplace Transforms, new lab regulations for handing in reports (2 days rather than 1 week previously), and the Engineering website. We also shared with him our upcoming plans for the re-organizing of our executive council, ideas for new humanities electives, and our new changes to the lounge. All in all it was a very beneficial evening with some great dessert.
