Engineers compete in BC

Five UW engineering students are off to Simon Fraser University this weekend to take part in the Canadian Engineering Competition for 1996. They were first and second place winners in the Ontario Engineering Competition, held two weeks ago at Queen's University.

The winners who are on their way to British Columbia:

Gay and lesbian celebration

It's the silver (25th) anniversary for GLLOW, the Gay and Lesbian Liberation of Waterloo. A celebration is to be held tomorrow night at the Waterloo Inn -- dinner at 7, dance at 10, tickets $25 -- with guest speaker Svend Robinson, famous as the first openly gay member of Parliament. "It should be the biggest LBGT party we've ever seen in the Kitchener-Waterloo-Cambridge area," says GLLOW committee member Jim Parrott. Information: the Federation of Students office, 888-4042.

Dance presents its Swan Song

Sunday afternoon at 2:30, "Swan Song" in the Humanities Theatre will be the last concert for the UW dance department, which is going out of business -- the victim of budget cuts for the faculty of applied health sciences.

Students, faculty, staff and alumni will perform. "Join us," a brochure invites, "for an afternoon of fine dancing with a notable of roster of choreographers who have been associated with the Dance Department over the years. . . . Featuring Baroque, Classical, Jazz and Modern Dance performed to music that ranges from the old masters to the new creators. . . . Preceding the concert on March 10 there will be an Open House at the Dance Department's East Campus Hall studios from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. All are welcome to come look at historical displays and installations as well as meet other dance enthusiasts."

Tickets for "Swan Song" are $8 and $6 from the Humanities box office.

International Women's Day

Today's the day, and the Federation of Students women's centre has a bus trip to Toronto organized for people who want to attend celebrations there. This evening, Womynfest is "the third annual coffeehouse celebration" in the rotunda of Kitchener city hall. Also at Kitchener city hall, a women's health fair is scheduled to run all day tomorrow.

All up in the air

The UW juggling club holds its fourth annual "Juggling Fest" in the Student Life Centre tomorrow, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Says Robbie Berks of the club: "During the day there will be juggling games, juggling tricks, and yet more juggling. It'll be as much fun as the law will allow, for beginners and professionals alike. . . . We expect to see great jugglers from as far away as Ottawa and Buffalo at our fest, the largest such fest in Ontario. Everyone is most welcome, and it is completely and utterly free. Juggling is surprisingly easy. Give it a try! Satisfaction is guaranteed, or your money back!"

The public show is in the atrium of the Student Life Centre and starts at 7.30 p.m.

More on the to-do list

Talking about funding

Students' council, the Federation of Students governing body, will meet at noon Sunday in the Student Life Centre. "As always, everyone is welcome," writes Trish Mumby from the Fed office. "We will be discussing entering into a National Post-Secondary Education Funding Campaign with the Canadian Alliance of Student Associations."

Ready -- aim for fire

Kelly Wilker, who's on the staff association social committee, writes from the registrar's office:
The University of Waterloo Staff Association has put together a Boat Cruise for the Symphony of Fire for Saturday, July 6, 1996. We have already had enough interest to have two buses going. We have some interested staff still on a waiting list. We are considering the possibility of a third bus. The cost of this event is $65/person for Staff Association Members plus one guest and $68.00/person for Non-Staff Association Members. The cost includes bus, dinner and cruise. A deposit of $25.00/person is due now and the balance is due by May 31st, 1996.
