Flour Bomb Capture the Flag
Sep

6:00 PM18:00

Flour Bomb Capture the Flag

Come shake off the week with this fun colour-run-meets-dodgeball extravaganza. We will meet by the flag poles in the quad at 6pm where flour filled stockings will be handed out. From there we will play a few rounds of capture the flag, tag, and whatever else our student life director can come up with. Wear dark-ish clothes, decent running shoes and be prepared to get a little messy. 

If you are not athletically-inclined, don't stress, every good capture the flag team needs a strategist and some dedicated flag guards, so just come and do what you are comfortable with. Non-science friends are more than welcome!

Location: Dal Quad.

If you have any questions, or if there is anything we can do to make this event more accessible for you, shoot us an email at dss@dal.ca.

Fall AGM

Fall AGM

  • Student Union Building - 2nd floor Council Chambers (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Welcome back science students! After a relaxing summer we are ready to kick off the school year with our fall AGM. The meeting will be held Monday, September 11th, at 7:00 PM on the 2nd floor of the Student Union Building (in the council chambers... you'll see it!). Click here to see the full meeting agenda, but some highlights include electing a first year rep,  DISP rep, and environmental affairs rep, as well as appointing a bunch of committee chairs, passing a budget, and discussing some constitutional amendments. Phew, that's a lot! Fortunately, Melanie (our director of student life!) has us equipped with lots and lots of snacks (and let's be honest, the best way to judge a society is based on the snacks!)

This meeting is open to all science students (you all are members of the society since you pay the science society fee as part of tuition). Everyone has the right to speak and vote at this meeting.

If you are interested in running for one of the representative or committee chair positions you will be asked to give a short (1 minute) speech about why you're interested in the position and what experience you have (if any) in similar positions. You can find more information about the various positions in our constitution. If you have any questions at all about the process or what you should be saying or anything, shoot us an email at dss@dal.ca and we'll help you out. We are really excited and open to students getting involved and would love to support you in any way possible!
