Practice English Speaking&Listening with: A Warm Welcome Back to School

Difficulty: 0

Aani, bienvenue, and welcome

Thunderbirds to the Algoma University

family. It is absolutely wonderful to see

all the new and returning students on

our different campuses.

Over the past several months we've listened

to our students and our stakeholders

and we have many new exciting

initiatives to share with you as we

embark on this new school year. Let's

take a closer look.

Big things happening right across campus.

We have heard you Thunderbirds

and as a result we are increasing and

enhancing student spaces on campus in

partnership with the Anishinaabe People's

Council we're renovating upstairs to

create a new SASA Lounge and

behind me we are creating a new

International Student's Lounge. If you need

help with registration, payments, personal

or academic counseling, Student Success

Central is your one-stop shop. And look

for the "Ask Me" buttons that are all

throughout campus and someone can help

guide you to where you need to go.

This past July, we launched the Algoma

University School of Business &

Economics in both Sault Ste. Marie and

Brampton. And thanks to an expanded

partnership with Laurentian University

we are welcoming our first class of

engineering students to the Algoma

campus this fall. Based on your feedback

David and Jillian are focused on

enhancing your student experience here

at Algoma. We have a lot of fun

activities planned for Orientation Week

and we can't wait to see you there. And

we can't wait to have a great year - lots

of events happening, lots of

opportunities for you get involved and

build a great campus experience.

When you have a chance come see the

renovation of Shingwauk Hall, a building of

major historical significance in Canada

and one of the oldest buildings on our

campus. Book a tour through the Shingwauk

Residential Schools Centre with your

friends this year. It is sure to be a

powerful and transformational experience.

The Thunderbird is powerful, strong, and

free. You are powerful, strong, and free.

Welcome to Algoma, Thunderbirds.

Seize this moment. Have a great year and

I look forward to meeting every single

one of you
