DSU.ca is getting a makeover

The DSU’s website is known to include references to former council executives and blame Saint Mary’s University for pages with missing content. That is expected to change with an upcoming revamp, according to VP (internal) Ramz Aziz in his Oct. 9 report to council.

The website will show a new face and be properly launched in November. A later update slated for January includes a housing rating system, where students can leave comments about apartments and homes they’ve lived in.

DSU has an app for that

The DSU app, which was first made available during O-Week, will be formally launched closer to Halloween. The app will be used to coordinate event scheduling and will include Tiger Society, in order to make societies more accessible to students.

Approximately 665 users have signed up for the service so far, which uses the OOHLALA platform.

Dal’s annual powwow

The Studley Quad was transformed last Wednesday in a flurry of colourful feathers, streamers and decorations as the campus celebrated Dal’s fourth annual Mawio’mi.

The Mi’kmaq flag was raised on campus and the event included dancers, drummers, chiefs and celebrators, both native and non-native. The event marks the beginning of Mi’kmaq History Month in Nova Scotia.
