Weekly Updates - March 27, 2017
Invitation from Thompson Rivers University 
Dear Community Members and Prospective Students,

Weyt-k! My name is Rhyannon Alexander; I am the Aboriginal Student Recruiter & Enrolment Representative at Thompson Rivers University.  I would like to take this opportunity to formally invite you to TRU Spring Open House next Saturday, March 25.

This is a great opportunity to discover everything that student life has to offer, take a campus tour, connect one-on-one with professors and staff, and learn about amazing opportunities - like co-op, study abroad, and undergraduate research. For more details on Open House, check out the full schedule of events.

In addition, for the Aboriginal community, we are hosting an Aboriginal Student Services Session at 10:45 am at Cplul'kw'ten (The Gathering Place).  You can learn more about campus services for Aboriginal students from Joanne Brown, Aboriginal Services Supervisor.  And you can also talk to me, to discover which program is right for you. By attending the Aboriginal Student Services session, you will be entered to win a Samsung tablet.  Plus, there is a complimentary BBQ, bannock, and Indian ice cream.

It doesn't matter if you haven't applied, or if you've been accepted.  Nor what grade you're in; all are welcome.  Friends and family, too.

Pre-register now for your chance to win a $250 Best Buy Gift Card, and don't forget to check-in when you arrive at Open House to be entered to win a $500 TRU Bookstore Gift Card.

Looking forward to seeing you at Open House!
