New recycling options
You've probably seen them around campus — there are new bins on the block as SAIT expands our recycling system with the goal of a greener campus. The larger bins — and clear signage of what goes where — will make it easier for everyone on campus to do their part to help reach that goal.
Casualty simulation on campus
On Monday, Oct. 28, SAIT will host SimuNation — an educational conference built around health care simulation.

You may be asked to use an alternate entrance if possible.
