Free Tutorial Services

If you are having trouble in any classes, there will be a sign-up sheet posted on the bulletin board outside the student lounge (ED127) to sign up for tutorials. If you cannot make it to the lounge, or can’t find it, you can also contact Sherron Campbell–VP Academic–at

Rat’s Nest is out!

A new issue of The Rat’s Nest, our U of R engineering student paper, is out! You can get you copy from the lounge (ED127) today. It’s filled with useful information, not-so-useful information, jokes, comics, sarcasm, and humour. (Please note that the humour is not necessarily the opinions o the RESS and are meant to be taken lightly, as jokes.)

We are also actively accepting content for the next issue of The Rat’s Nest. If you have an opinion, draw comics, or want to advertise a subgroup of the RESS, e-mail Johnny Desnoyers-Stewart–Publications Director– at If you have read it in the past, it has undergone a makeover, so make sure you check out the transformation!
