BUSU plans smaller social for orientation

August 21, 2018

Brandon University’s Student Union has announced that they will be planning a smaller social for orientation after consecutive years of organizing the events at a loss. “Consecutive years of organizing these events at a loss has meant that we’ve decided that the risk of organizing such a large-scale event is too substantial,” said BUSU president Justin Shannon at a city council meeting. “This year, we wanted to have an event that we thought we could make both very successful and viable in the long term if subsequent councils want to continue to do this type of event.” Shannon added that the union hopes the new, smaller event will help newcomers to Brandon meet and form connections with other students and community members. Brandon Sun
