Your cheque is in the mail!

Good news for students feeling a little tight financially – health plan opt-out cheques will be available early this year!

The cheques will be ready for pick-up on Monday Oct. 20 in the third floor lounge of the University Community Centre from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.. The pick-up schedule runs from Oct. 20 to 24 and again on Oct. 27 to 31.

Health plan cards will also be available and to receive the card, students must bring their student identification. Those picking up cheques must bring student identification as well as the yellow opt-out form.

Directory deadline

Today is your last chance to change your address for the student directory.

Students can ensure the university has the correct address through computer terminals on campus, explained James Deans, VP-communications for the University Students' Council.

There are terminals in D.B. Weldon library, Somerville House, the Social Science Centre, Stevenson-Lawson Building and all residences except Essex Hall, Deans said.

The directories will be available by the end of this month or the beginning of the next, Deans added.

Yesterday's "Buy the USC Auction" was cancelled due to the Board of Governors forums.

Organizer Sylvia Keszthelyi said the auction has been re-scheduled to Oct. 30 at noon in the atrium of the University Community Centre. All proceeds will go to the United Way.
