We’re Hiring an Assistant Chief Returning Officer

We need someone to help run our elections in February. The Assistant Chief Returning Officer is a paid position from October to February. Picture the best parts of Frank Underwood mixed with Selina Meyer. Actually, don’t. I’ve never seen House of Cards, or Veep, but I’m pretty sure that’s a terrible comparison. Listen, the point is, you’re interested in politics and we need someone who can keep an election fair, run it smoothly, and isn’t afraid to begin their day with a little light reading about referenda.

Applications are due on Friday to Matt McLean. Read the full job description here - http://bit.ly/1wfG0sy

It’s Coming. What’s Coming? Just Wait and See.


It’s coming… Get ready, Laurier. Bigger. Better. Prizier. Yes, I made that word up, but it’s gonna be a thing. Mark my words. Stay tuned. ;)

    What’s Open During the Break?

    It’s time for a well deserved break for our first ever Fall Reading Week. Just in case you’re on campus this week, here’s what is and isn’t open around town.

     It’s all under the cut!

    Try the Food Bank’s Own Vegetarian Tomato Fettucini


    The Food Bank is whipping up a sweet pasta chock full of Fall flavours. There’s no pumpkin spice involved, but try welcoming in October with this easy to make dinner.

    Of course, it doesn’t have to be vegetarian, you can always sneak a little meat in if you like.

    You can make a Food Bank request any time, day or night at http://foodbank.yourstudentsunion.ca


    • 12 Mushrooms

    • 2 Peppers

    •1 Onions

    •Chili Flakes


    •Ground black Pepper

    •4 Cloves of Garlic


    • ¾ can of tomato sauce

    •¼ cup Half-Half Cream/ Alfredo Sauce/ Milk, either of these ingredients will add similar flavoring to the pasta. We recommend Alfredo Sauce.

    •Vegetable oil


    1. Bring water to boil and add in fettuccini and let it cook, add a tablespoon of oil and a tablespoon of salt. The oil makes sure the fettuccini doesn’t stick together and salt is for taste.

    2. Dice the onions, peppers and mushrooms into the size you desire, then cut garlic into small pieces.

    3. Preheat a skillet at medium high heat, add a tbsp of oil, sauté onion and let them cook for 1 minute. Add mushrooms, garlic, and peppers, stirring occasionally until mushrooms are thoroughly cooked and onions are golden brown. Half-way through cooking add 2 pinches of salt, pepper, and chili flakes. You have the option of adding as much flavouring as needed. This takes approximately 5 minutes.

    4. In a separate pot bring tomato sauce to a boil and add alfredo sauce, half-half cream, or milk and stir until the 2 ingredients are combined. Add in flavouring to your liking and at this point add the sautéed vegetables into the sauce.

    5. Add the fettuccini into the same pot and combine the pasta and the sauce until there is equal distribution of sauce and pasta.

    6. The pasta is ready to serve! This pasta can serve 5 people.

    Note: If you want to add a protein to this pasta, we recommend shrimp or sausage. Just sauté the meat until cooked and add to the sauce with the vegetable mixture.

    Don’t forget to garnish it like the picture. Presentation is EVERYTHING.

    Hey, all. We just wrapped our second board meeting of the school year. If you missed it, here are the highlights from this afternoon. 

    We’re hoping for good things for our recruitment numbers next year. We had our student executive at the Ontario Universities Fair last weekend talking up students. 10,000 prospective students walked through the doors and 5,000 signed up to learn more about good ol’ Wilfrid Laurier. We might be welcoming a whole lotta first years to campus next fall.
