  • Fall 2022 Reading Week Survey

    January 19th, 2022

    Due to scheduling conflicts, the Fall 2022 Reading Week may need to be moved to different dates in October or November.

    The UWSA has created a quick survey to gather information about which dates would work better for UofW students. We appreciate your input as the data gathered will help us advocate for the option that students prefer.

    You can find the survey here: Fall 2022 Reading Week Survey

  • UWSA Discord Server

    January 16th, 2022

    Inspired by a motion led by one of our Board of Director’s Clifford Stornel, the UWSA has created a Discord Server just for UofW students! 👥

    Discord is an easy, low-barrier way for students to connect with each other while remotely learning. Discord servers are organized into topic-based channels where students can share, talk on the voice channels, chat, and hang out with each other within certain departments and sub-communities ranging from student groups to gaming! There will be a how-to video coming soon for anyone who is new to Discord servers.

    Students will have to sign up through the SurveyMonkey survey to get the server link: UWSA Discord Survey Monkey

    There is also a contest! Anyone who joins the UWSA Discord is entered for a chance to win our ✨Discord Prize Pack!✨ The prize is a Bose Bluetooth speaker, a toque from Shop Take Care, UWSA Swag, and a $50 gift card for the UW Bookstore! Winner will be announced at the end of the month on the Discord Server.

    Contest is open to current UWinnipeg students only. You will need your student ID to collect your prize. Current UWSA employees and directors are not eligible to enter.

    Please view the Terms and Conditions and Community Guidelines for Discord use.
