Meet the amazing team behind samu’s programs

We would like to introduce students to the wonderful individuals behind SAMU’s amazing programs.

Macey Edem Nortey, Programs Manger

Hello helloooo! My name is Macey and I am the Programs Manager with SAMU. I oversee the programming and educational campus life experience alongside two student staff members who contribute to the creative building blocks that are Programs. I have a deep passion for student engagement and look forward to teaching and learning within the SAMU community. Be sure to check out all of our features this term, whether it be online, or in the SAMU building.

 

Amelia Altmiks, Community Assistant

Hi! My name is Amelia, I’m the Community Assistant at SAMU and am taking a BA in Philosophy here at MacEwan University. This spring will mark my sixth season as a beekeeper. I have volunteered with the Office of Sustainability’s honeybee hive project since 2018, managing the hives and often doing outreach education. During the summer of 2020 I started a hive at the Alberta Avenue Community League. This project was in collaboration with funding from the city of Edmonton and is the first honeybee hive in a community league garden in Edmonton! I look forward to bringing students engaging and thoughtful programming that highlights the beauty of this environment and our community.

TUNE IN ON THE 1ST FRIDAY OF EVERY MONTH

To view a new blog and activities focused around SAMU’s Community and Wellbeing programs. Fresh Fridays can be viewed in the Events Calendar.

Check out our Wellbeing Assistant Inder Singh’s interviews with students to get the full scoop on the first few weeks back on campus!

SAMU Programs aim to provide students with activities and opportunities to learn about wellbeing, as well as raising awareness about various resources available to students, both in and outside the MacEwan community.

Our mission is to provide ongoing and one-off programming with the direct aim to improve the long-term wellbeing of MacEwan students and their community.

SAMU Programs consist of the Student Refugee Program (SRP), StressLess, Sustainability, SAMU Cares, and Artworks. SAMU Programs also runs a variety of other programming and interactive campaigns, blog posts, hands out wellness bags, and organizes activities that fall under two umbrellas of focus – Wellbeing and Community.

Please note, all SAMU programming is subject to change as we respond to updates and guidelines for COVID-19.

Stress is a common and normal issue for a student to experience. It can be the result of any number of problems.

Signs of stress can be physical, emotional, or behavioural. Some common symptoms of feeling stressed include:

Sleep problems
Irritability
Headaches
Anxiety
Indecisiveness
Stress is the result of an imbalance between demands and coping strategies. When the demands placed on us are greater than our ability to cope with them, we experience stress.

The key to handling stress is to regain balance by increasing our coping strategies to deal with the demands. When we look at coping, we want to be doing things that are both external and internal. It is essential to develop a strong social system, break up your routine, take care of your body, and ask for help when needed.

Student Refugee Program

Each term, $2.50 of your student fees goes towards supporting SAMU’s Student Refugee Program (SRP). Working with World University Service of Canada (WUSC), SRP funds the tuition and housing of a refugee student for four years. With the help of a local committee group made up of students and staff, SAMU ensures all the sponsored student’s needs are met throughout their time at MacEwan.
