Greetings from your College of Engineering and Physical Sciences Student Council!

3. What’s Happening this Month on Campus
Textbooks for Change provides affordable and accessible educational material to students both locally and across the globe. We believe that post-secondary students should be able to learn from high-quality material, regardless of their geographic location or economic status.
Whether it’s donating educational material to campus libraries in Kenya or selling an affordable used textbook to a student in Canada, our goal is to improve the educational landscape around the world. We work collaboratively with campus and community partners to create this impact, book by book.
Are your old textbooks currently collecting dust? Small actions can create a big impact. Consider making a change this holiday season by donating your used textbooks in one of our many drop boxes across campus, including the University Centre, Library, Athletic Centre, and Macdonald Hall.
For more information on Textbooks for Change and what we do, check outhttps://textbooksforchange.com/.
That’s all for our November newsletter! Short and sweet so as to not distract you from rocking those exams. From all of us at CEPSSC we are wishing you all the best and to reach out for help if you’re feeling unwell or stressed.
