Dear Arts & Science class of 2016,
First and foremost – congratulations! You are starting one of the most incredible experiences of your life at an amazing university. Thank you for choosing Queen’s and thank you for choosing the Faculty of Arts & Science. ASUS – The Arts & Science Undergraduate Society – is your faculty student government. Our purpose is to make your undergraduate life as interesting and enjoyable as possible.
But for the class of 2016, the class that already has it all, what more could you want? ASUS offers hundreds of volunteer opportunities to all students, at all levels of commitment. You could work for the elections committee, a leadership conference, at ASUS Movie Theatre, on the graphic design team, on an equity committee, or in one of many community outreach committees. We also represent the student voice to the administration. No matter what interests you, there is definitely an opportunity for you at ASUS!
Orientation week is one of the most memorable times at Queen’s. Take advantage of all the events, get to know as many people as possible, and get involved in as many ways as possible! The week may feel overwhelming but don’t forget that every other student has felt the same nervous and excited feeling as you on their first day of class. We are all part of the impressive Queen’s Community and that alone makes you have something in common with everyone. With that being said, don’t forget about what makes you unique!
The ASUS executive will be at a lot of events during the week wearing black shirts – say hi if you see one of us, we’re students just like you and we’re really looking forward to meeting you.
If you want more information about what exactly ASUS does and you don’t get a chance to talk to us during the week, check out www.queensASUS.com, find us on Facebook at “Faculty of Arts and Science at Queen’s University”, and stop by our office, The ASUS Core at 183 University Ave. (the building with the red porch) if you have any questions.
Once again, congratulations! ASUS is here completely for you and we can’t wait to see you around.
