Hi society


In an attempt to bring students together, the first meeting of the English Society for Undergraduate Students will be held tonight in University College.

The mandate of the society, which was only formally organized this past November, is to give English students the opportunity to get together and meet, said coordinator Mike Laidlaw. "English classes are so large – it's hard to meet anyone."

The open general meeting will take place in Rm. 204 of UC at 5:30 p.m.. It is open to any English student but students in other faculties are also encouraged to attend.

There is also a designated lounge for English students now located in Rm. 65 of UC.

KSA does the catwalk


The Korean Students' Association will play host this Saturday to the Second Annual Charity Fashion Show.

The students' are hoping the event, to be held at the London Convention Centre, will beat last year's total of raising $2,000 with all proceeds going towards the Canadian Cancer Society, said KSA spokesperson Peter Yoo. "Last year was pretty successful and this year we expect to double the money raised."

Several sponsors are supporting the fashion show, in addition to over 15 London retail stores who will be donating clothes for the evening.

Tickets are available for $15 at the KSA club booth in the atrium of the University Community Centre or at the door.

Western set to be tamed


The first of two presentations on the fate of Ontario's Public wildlife land will take place in the Plant Sciences Department today.

The presentation is aimed at trying to get the provincial government to follow through on their Lands for Life initiative which will keep wild areas under management of the forest industry, said Tim Gray, executive director of Wildlands League, a chapter of the Canadian Parks and Wilderness Society. The second presentation will take place in Waterloo.

"We are trying to make sure people are aware and can become involved," Gray said.

All are invited to the discussion, led by the Wildlands League, scheduled to take place at 5 p.m.
