Angry about the state of the “library” at Georgian college? Do you find it ridiculous that as university students you have virtually zero reference materials and unacceptable library hours (especially on the weekends)? Well, the LSU is on it. There is a petition circling in hopes of extending the library hours to more appropriate times in order to better serve the university students on this campus. We deserve an adequate space to study and research. Join the fight today by signing the petition below and returning it to our office (E112 A) or stopping by our office (E112 A) and signing it!
Petition Summary: The Georgian College Library hours of operation do not meet the current demands of Georgian College and Laurentian University students.
As a facility catering to college, university and post-graduate students, we, the students, are not provided with the services we require to complete our studies.
EXTEND LIBRARY HOURS!!! Let’s make the Georgian College Barrie Campus a place where after class/independent learning is fostered!!! Help Georgian/Laurentian students embrace their entrepreneurial ambitions by providing the resources they need!
Other universities and colleges in Ontario offer weekly hours to at least 12:00am and up until 2:00am during exam time, as well as certain areas open 24/7! Let’s lose the title of a “commuter” college/university! Help PROVIDE us with the resources! We will use them! Please sign this petition to increase library hours and study resources at Georgian College Barrie Campus!!!
The health plan is now active! Students can now use their plan numbers directly- the prefix LSB followed by their Georgian student number followed by two zeroes. For additional information please see the health and dental plan section on the website! If you encounter any issues or have questions regarding your plan that cannot be answered on the website call the GreehShield help line at 1.888.711.1119.
General Membership Meeting Today!
12pm in room K229 B (Alumni Hall) and there will be pizza and refreshments for all students attending.
The General Membership Meeting (GMM) is a forum of direct democracy open to all Laurentian student’s studying at either the Barrie or Orillia campuses. Student’s may participate if they are currently enrolled in at least ONE Laurentian University course.
The GMM facilitates a ‘bottom-up’ democratic process, ensuring that your students’ union, the Laurentian Students’ Union (LSU) has a mandate that is established by and for the student’s it represents.
The LSU believes that empowered GMMs are the most effective way to ensure that all voices are provided a forum to influence the decision making process. In other words, the direct democracy of the GMM allows those who are most affected by decisions the opportunity to participate in the process of making those decisions.
So, the LSU invites you to come out and make your voice heard. Come to the GMM to listen, discuss, debate, and vote on issues that directly affect your experience as a University student.
Items on the agenda for this GMM are:
1. Debrief and LSU Introduction
2. Health Plan
3. Campaigns (update on campaigns, campaign committee)
4. Events (Event updates, Event ideas)
5. Clubs and Student Associations
6. Constitution Changes
7. Open floor for student comments, questions, motions
This is a preliminary agenda, and may be edited as the GMM comes closer. Students may wish to add items to the agenda, and if they do, please contact Mark Gauci (email@example.com) or post on this event.
Additional items can be added to the agenda after being presented at the beginning of the GMM and must be endorsed by no less than a 2/3rds majority.
Ratification of all motions presented to the GMM must be endorsed by no less than a 2/3rds majority.
