November already

A message from your MSVUSU President, Katerina Allan

The days left in the year are numbered. It’s November and as we approach colder weather, it sets a good reminder that we are at the beginning of flu season. With COVID-19 numbers still surging in many of our communities, it’s important to remain cautious and get tested regularly if you’re experiencing any symptoms. We encourage everyone who can, to get the Fall Booster for COVID-19, and the annual flu-shot, both of which can be booked online at Let’s protect each other!

November also paves an opportunity for me to highlight something that I’m sure most of us look forward to: reading week. Reading week has been circled on our calendars since the beginning of the term. While we use this time to prioritize assignments, it’s equally important for you to take this period to destress and do whatever makes you happy. In my October blog, I mentioned how walking my Waterdog, Frejya is part of my regular routine to ensure I get physical exercise.

Because of reading week, the MSVU Students’ Union offices will be closed from November 7th-11th. All operations and services will be closed, except for the food bank which will be operating under stricter hours. You can stay updated by following our social accounts.

Work continues for me next week as I will be travelling to Ottawa, attending the Canadian Federation of Students National General Meeting and conference. This conference brings Students’ Unions across Canada together to connect, discuss, and debate student issues. The Canadian Federation of Students offers national organizing and campaigns, and student services, like ISIC cards (available at The Hub) and free tax filing. I look forward to representing Nova Scotia and the Mount!

See you in December!

-Katerina Allan, MSVUSU President
