Student society gives the gift of giving

Every year, the CCSS puts together a limited number of Christmas hampers for those in need; the hampers contain food and other goodies. If you are in need of a hamper, email the student society’s Gord Rant at to be added to the list. The hampers will be handed out at both Lansdowne and Interurban campuses after December 1.

Trades building funding almost complete

Camosun College has been trying to raise $5 million to complete their trades-building renovations at Interurban, while also purchasing equipment for student use. The college recently said they need $200,000 more to meet their goal, which just happens to be approximately the amount they spent in the past year on an ex-president they fired but won’t give a reason to the public for (search “Kathryn Laurin” on for more information). C’mon: are we not going to make a joke about that? Totally going to make a joke about that.

Chargers men’s volleyball gets it done 

The Camosun Chargers men’s volleyball team kicked off their season on October 13 with a pair of wins. Head coach Charles Parkinson, who commentated on Olympic volleyball from Toronto this summer, said in a press release that the play was “a bit ragged at times” but that he’s happy with how well-rounded the team is looking so far. The Chargers men’s volleyball team’s next home games are November 4 and 5 at 8 pm at the Pacific Institute for Sport Excellence at Interurban.
