Big Events Happening On Campus in September
Your CapU Social Calendar
Avery Nowicki // Communities Editor
As the autumn semester begins, students all across the city are crowding into libraries and late night cafes, cracking open their textbooks, and returning to their studies. As long days at the beach and evenings at the PNE fall behind them though, a host of new events are on the horizon.
Our semester begins with the CapU Street Party on Sept. 5 from 11:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. A campus-wide event, the street party will include a free barbecue, student club fair, games provided by the Capilano Students’ Union (CSU) and more.
On Sept 6th, at 11:30am the CSU will hold their upcoming Anti-Racism Legislation Group, exclusively for indigenous students. This event will be followed by a Gender Diversity Focus Group, for TNB2S (Trans/Non-Binary/Two Spirited) students exclusively. Lastly in September, the CSU will hold an Anti-Racism Focus Group for international students only on Sept 13th, 2023 at 11:30am.
Our semester at CapU ends with a concert on campus by Donny McCaslin, the three-time Grammy nominated bandleader behind David Bowie’s blackstar album. The concert will be held on September 24, at the BlueShore Theatre. Tickets can be found on the blueshore website.
Looking forward to October, students may now register for the CSU’s 2 night Glamping (Glamorous Camping) Trip. This fully planned trip is available for all students. They will stay in cabins at Camp Jubilee, enjoy delicious fireside meals, and make great friendships.
To note: this event costs $200 per student. Registration can be found via CSU website.
