GuHu tries another refresh

A society changing things up.

The University of Guelph-Humber’s Media Society, known as GuHu, has ramped up a sort of rebrand in the last week ahead of the September start of the fall semester.

GuHu is known by its events and television programming, including shows with special guests. One area where it promises to deliver on this year, according to the posts, is the journalism side of the society.

The journalism division of GuHu formally launched in February 2017 under the leadership of then-third year and future Emerge Magazine editor-in-chief Warren Schlote, reported the Radix.

That fall, as the college strike impacted Guelph-Humber, the founder of The Post inquired as to whether GuHu would start reporting online and if they would accept members to write for the society.

At the time, there was indications that there would be reporting opportunity for outside the classroom and not tied to academics, but none arose.

Without any other options, The Avro Post was launched.

However, this year, it appears as though there could be a journalism wing that comes back into play and there is also a new branding theme that appears to have come about on GuHu’s social media.

One graphic depicts the different areas that GuHu participates in and one of them listed is “journalism” with a newspaper icon above it. Another graphic says that, with GuHu, students can “bring your stories to life” and “practice media industry skills”.

Currently, the society’s website is in a “maintenance mode”, a status that it has carried for a significant part of August. It is not made clear why but asks visitors to return “in a few days”.

Only time will tell if GuHu will offer digital campus journalism in text form beyond the broadcasting work that they have carried out in previous years. The Post has reached out for comment. ■

Humber Galleries calling for artwork

Humber Galleries aims to inspire.

Humber Galleries is encouraging students and alumni to consider submitting artwork for their “Campus as a Canvas” initiative.

The facilitator has plans to repurpose “the function of our six display cases located around the Lakeshore and North Campuses as well as identifying pop-up spaces for the purpose of promoting work created by Humber students from all programs.”

Humber Galleries is driven to encourage collaboration between Humber programs and the Humber community as they enter the second semester of this initiative, according to a description

“The galleries are a place for everyone to learn and experiment through art from our many different perspectives. Art is polytechnic learning: both a way to gain practical skills for many intersecting trades, and a way to think through difficult ideas and possible futures,” says Kyla Ross, Humber Galleries Coordinator.

Humber Galleries is exploring ways to change their exhibition spaces by extending their scope of locations to include all Humber campuses. They hope to make the campuses appear more as canvases available for content by Humber students, faculty, staff, as well as alumni.

The locations they plan to use includes; L Space Gallery at the Humber Lakeshore campus, display cases across both Humber Lakeshore and Humber North campuses, and the large wall in the atrium of the Learning Resource Commons at Humber North campus.

Pop-up locations will also be appearing throughout both campuses as the semester continues.

Current Humber students and Humber alumni are encouraged to submit artwork that they have created at Humber College and if the artwork is selected, it will be put on display in one of the six display cases on campus.

For individuals interested, the application form found on Humber Galleries’ website is due by Nov. 24.

Humber Galleries will be hosting Student Info Sessions on Nov. 22 at Humber College North Campus in K107 from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m.  ■

Ambulance on campus for the 3rd time in 7 days

Police and ambulance services

Cruisers in front of the LRC.

An ambulance and three Toronto Police vehicles were on campus on Wednesday afternoon for around one hour, marking at least the third time within seven days that emergency services have been spotted on campus.

It did not appear the ambulance was used during the hour or longer that it was parked in front of the Learning Resource Commons at the front of North Campus.

Two cruisers were parked in front, a police SUV and multiple campus security vehicles were in and out of the area.

The ambulance and police SUV departed campus at 3:40 p.m. while the first cruiser departed soon after. The final cruiser departed after 4 p.m. and no details were immediately available.

An ambulance was in front of the Learning Resource Commons a week ago as a male patient was carried out on a stretcher. On Sunday night, an ambulance was spotted in front of Residence T Building.

The Avro Post has reached out for details from Humber College. ■
