AU and AUSU Birthdays!

It’s been an exciting Month for birthdays!

On June 25, Athabasca University turned 50!

We celebrated the 50th Anniversary of Athabasca University by joining in the drive-by, pop-up event on the AU campus in Athabasca, Alberta.

AUSU President Natasha Donahue and Executive Director Jodi Campbell went up to Athabasca to join in the festivities and represent the AU Students’ Union.

Check out our video of the event!


On July 16, AU Students’ Union turned 28!

We were incorporated on July 16, 1992, and were the first Students’ Union in the world dedicated to advocacy and support for distance education students.

Thank you to all of our amazing students and student leaders that keep our organization going strong, and here’s to many more years to come!
