As an Alumni Association, we are constantly in contact with the Huron University College Students’ Council (HUCSC) and hear about their upcoming plans. One of the systemic challenges they want to address is the inequity of the fees (e.g., uniforms, meals, administration fees, etc.) that are associated with being an Orientation Week volunteer. The Alumni Association is very keen to work with the HUCSC to address this and to help ensure every student can participate, regardless of their financial circumstances.
We are proposing an ‘Adopt-a-Soph’ program where alumni would donate to cover the fees for one—or more!—sophs at a cost of $150 per soph.
We genuinely believe this is a goal we can achieve this summer and want to challenge you to join us in meeting our goal of 54 sponsorships by July 15.
