Message from Your Student Executive

Hey everyone! Sean Waddingham, SAMU President here. As SAMU has started sending out regular newsletters, the rest of the student executives and I thought that writing a short piece each time might help keep students in the loop about what we’re up to. In that spirit, I thought I’d use this opportunity to discuss our plans for keeping students up to date on what our executive team is doing, and for sharing info about current events which affect students. This is especially important during what has been, and will continue to be for a while, a very uncertain and strange time!

I am committed to keeping students updated on SAMU’s work, particularly that of the Executive Committee, since we are elected by the student body. Some efforts to do so this year have included our livestream in which we addressed the decision to move classes online for fall semester, and our release on Tuesday, June 16 about the way the provincial budget affects post-secondary. It’s my hope that breaking things down in straightforward terms and directly answering student questions will help all MacEwan students cut through the noise of the daily news cycle, and help get to the point of what impacts you as a student.

So, keep an eye out for future columns, releases, livestreams, and more from your student executives. In the meantime, please check out our livestream from May 28 on SAMU’s Facebook page if you haven’t yet, as well as our news release about budget concerns.

I hope that everyone’s summers are going well so far despite COVID, and as always, please feel free to contact us with questions or comments!

Sean Waddingham, SAMU President
