AUSU IN PERSON DISCUSSION GROUPS
Getting together physically with fellow AU students adds to your university experience. Other students will be able to understand and relate to the joys and frustrations of distance learning. It’s also a way to stay abreast of information relating to AU and the Athabasca University Students’ Union.

NEEDED – VOLUNTEER MENTORS FOR NEW STUDENTS
Do you remember your first few months at AU? Do you remember all the questions you had and the confusions you encountered?

AUSU mentors are “experienced” AU students who are willing to provide a little guidance and support to new AU students. If you are interested in participating in this new venture of AUSU’s or if you’d like more information please contact Sandra Moore at email@example.com
