Student Sizzle—AU Social Media Topics

Following What's Hot around AU's Social Media Sites!

AthaU Facebook Group

Casey asks how long it takes for course grades to be finalized after final assignment grades are posted; this sparks off a discussion about who does what with course grades.  Jennifer tries to break the world’s record for refreshing her screen until her grades appear; still waiting for the folks at Guinness to rule on her attempt.  Jeffi is stunned to open a textbook to find it was assembled backwards; other students advise contacting AU’s course materials department for a replacement.

Other posts include book hoarding, taking an in-class course elsewhere for credit at AU, citing stats can reports, and courses CHEM 217 and PSYC 356.


@AthabascaU tweets:  “We were lucky enough to have a chat with #AthabascaU student and @TeamCanada National Cross Country Skier, Emily Nishikawa (@emnish89), to talk about how transformative online studying has been for her  #xcski #PyeongChang2018.”

@austudentsunion tweets:  “Our AUSU execs, along with @CASAACAE reps from across the country, are preparing for #AdvoWeek2018 in Ottawa, ready to advocate on behalf of #cdnpse students.”
