The summer is when the University of Regina and the Students’ Union team up to organize the grand welcome for students in September, marking the beginning of another academic year.
Between summer 2009 to 2011, I was involved with creating all of the visual assets of the URSU Welcome Week and assisting the University of Regina with their efforts in Student Orientation. Assets included event posters and flyers, banners and signage, website and social media assets, and artwork for distribute material like sponsorship packages, shirts, and swag.
In the summer of 2012, I became the Welcome Week Coordinator and took the lead role in organizing and planning the 2012 festival. My role involved approaching potential sponsors, planning events, coordinating with University of Regina departments and student groups, and ensuring the event was produced successfully.
