  • Science Cup
    • Steven brought up the idea at an All Presidents Meeting and the other DSU Presidents liked the idea
    • on April 3rd at 12:30pm in MBC there will be a meeting held to help approve the idea of Faculty Student Unions and 50 people need to show up to get the motion passed
      • these will act as the “middle man” between the SFSS and the DSUs
  • BPK Orientation
    • a separate orientation from the general one held to help introduce new BPK students to each other and the faculty
    • BPK students would pre-register and be placed in clans with group leaders (members of the BPKSA) and the day would go as follows:
      • a tour of SFU with a focus on BPK opportunities (how to apply to the fitness centre, peer health, volunteering at SFU Physio or with Strength & Conditioning)
      • lecture hall discussion (talk about the BPKSA and how we can answer any questions they have about the faculty/promote upcoming events)
      • BPK Research promotion (discuss the research going on and how they can get involved, lab tours)
      • Mini Kin Cup
    • timing would need to be sorted out (before or after the general orientation?) –> the first Thursday of September is what we are leaning towards now


Meeting was adjourned at 2:20 pm by Steven. The next meeting will be Friday, April 5, 2013 in the BPK Seminar Room at 1:30pm.
