As clubs get started for the school year, many students often want to join clubs to get involved and, even for students who opted out, they can get involved right away.

One out of many amazing clubs is Circle K UGH; just to be clear, no, this is not your ordinary gas station convenience store. As the president of the Circle K UGH last year and this year, I want to officially let you know that there are incoming changes on how we operate. 

We are going to be running at the University of Guelph-Humber most of the time like last year, but we are opening up the opportunity to students at Humber College Lakeshore Campus. We are looking for someone to represent at Lakeshore as an executive.  

Circle K International is a third party club that is open to universities and colleges with the goal of improving the community that they live within through events. It also gives students the chance to bond with others while gaining friendships and connections with outside networks.

An event that Circle K ran last year that was successful was the holiday cards making for the Youth Without Shelter, an organization serves the population of homeless youth. During the holiday time, they were making holiday gifts for the youth who are homeless. 

Last year, another member and I went to a volunteer event at Habitat of Humanity and we had lots of fun demolishing shelves and sorting tiles. We also had a little social with the University of Toronto, McMaster University and Western University. 

We have a couple of events planned for this year, want to know what they are?

Humber College said it is monitoring the novel coronavirus outbreak and its “potential impact on the institution” in a statement posted online last week and updated on Monday.

Toronto Public Health told the college that “there are no particular actions required” at this time.

A special group tasked with keeping the campus community informed on the latest precautions for the virus has been established, made up of stakeholders from various departments and the University of Guelph-Humber.

Humber points students, staff and faculty to the Ontario Ministry of Health website’s dedicated webpage for updates.

The college’s announcement also asked that those on campus “wash their hands as frequently as possible” due to it being the winter flu season.

As of Tuesday morning in Ontario, there is one confirmed case of the novel coronavirus, one “presumptive” case and 11 cases under investigation. ■
