Ask the Editors: Exciting stuff on campus

What are you most excited about on campus this year that you think students should know about?

Danielle Fuechtmann, Editor-in-Chief

The most exciting thing on campus this year? CAT, obviously. Actually, although I’m excited for the new spaces it provides for students to gather (can we talk about the fun colours and design elements?) and a few more coffee places, I’m more pleased about another year of great resources for students. Whether you’re a new or returning student, I encourage you to check out some of the great programs and services available from both NAIT and NAITSA. From counselling to social and networking opportunities, there’s something for everyone!

This year, I am most excited about our Editors plans to increase student engagement with the Nugget.

Picking up the paper each week is a great way to learn about the different things going on around campus, from news, student politics, Ook sports and entertainment articles written by your fellow students.

Whether you are a new student or not, I invite you to come down to our regular contributors meeting every Tuesday from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in E-128 for some free lunch and to learn about how you can get involved. You won’t regret it!

I’m actually more excited about the opportunities that open spaces represent on campus. With programs and other campus services finding new homes around campus, other spaces are opening up. For example, the old International Students Centre location is currently vacant, and most services have moved out of the South Lobby. I’m very interested in hearing what those spaces will be used for on campus, as NAIT continues to grow and offer more to students.

The new spaces on campus (like the CAT building) are fantastic in offering new opportunities, but freeing up existing space will also create opportunities for campus use. I’m excited to see how NAIT will use these spaces to support students and staff as campus evolves.

The thing I’m most excited about is happening right now! It’s all downhill from here (just kidding). But in all seriousness, you should be checking out the on-campus extravaganza known as Nest Fest, which ends tonight. To create a three day event, free for students, with popular, talented musicians representing multiple genres is no easy task, but the good folks over at NAITSA pulled it off. If you made it out yesterday or Tuesday, I’m sure you agree with me, and if not, head down to the S-Wing tonight and experience Nest Fest yourself!
