7 ways to win at winter
Winter’s here — the days are shorter, the temperature’s dropping, we’ve already seen some snow and people are digging out their winter gear. We asked the #SAIT community for tips on how to make winter awesome — here’s what they said. ❄️
Enhance your calm at the new Student Zen Den
Take a seat, grab a stash of play dough and let the calm wash over you. Located on the third floor of the Stan Grad Centre, MB328, the Zen Den is a quiet space for students to take a breath and de-stress. Get the Zen Den basics and drop by.
Thanks to our unique buildings, the Calgary Police Service often uses SAIT as a training ground for specialized exercises. On Friday, Nov. 29, the tactical unit will be training and rappelling off the side of the Senator Burns building.
