The next Calgary chapter event is our annual Student Send-off. This year, the event is on Sunday, June 24 from 5 until 7 pm at the Mt. Pleasant Community Hall (602 - 22 Avenue NW).
For those who are unfamiliar, the annual send-off is an opportunity for the local chapter to meet the newest members of the Xaverian family: the newest students to StFX and their families. We host a BBQ and allow the new students to mingle with local alumni and, more important, current StFX students.
Part of the program includes a visit from StFX Recruitment and Admissions. Parents generally have just as many questions about what to expect as their children do. So while the students can mingle with their peers, parents can ask questions of alumni and StFX Recruitment and Admissions. And everyone gets fed at the same time!
Leone Campbell Memorial Bursary
Also at the Send-off, the chapter has applications for the Leone Campbell Memorial Bursary. The bursary is awarded by the chapter for a deserving incoming StFX student based on academic proficiency, athletic involvement and community stewardship. An electronic version of the bursary application will be made available after the Send-off.
Spread the word
Invitations to students and their families will be sent in the coming weeks. The event is open for new StFX students and their families, as well as current StFX students.
