We are all affected. That is the message the Man Up Against Violence campaign is trying to get across to students at the University of Regina this week. Addison Docherty and Mark Kleisinger are the spokespeople for the campaign. “The idea is we’re not trying to tell people what to do or how to man up, we’re just trying to demonstrate what the ideal definition of what manhood is and it’s not about violence,” explained Kleisinger.

Living in residence is a great convenience for some and a big headache for others.

A new residence is popping up at the University of Regina and it hasn’t gone unnoticed. Its construction has put a major dent in parking, taking up two lots for the first month of school - and leaving some students wondering if the project will be worth it in the long run.

Talking about money and finances has always had a stigma. The latest course to be offered at the Lifelong Learning Centre at the University of Regina is hoping to get rid of that.

Money Matters: What Your Parents Didn’t Teach You is a new course designed to teach people tips, strategies and little known secrets to better manage their own finances. Students will learn how to get their finances on track, and to get rid of the scary thought of financial planning.

After earning a film degree from the University of Regina, Jung Seok Seo was anxious to bust into the industry. He moved to Toronto in 2009 and took an unpaid internship in post-production at an ad agency. He aspired to become an editor but, as he says, instead felt like an “office slave.”

Guess what, eating human flesh is a real thing.  When most people think of cannibalism, they think of zombies, like the ones on AMC's The Walking Dead. Rituals around death and human consumption have long fascinated us in popular culture. It has become an increasingly popular topic in academia, too.

In November 2010, a project to upgrade the College Avenue campus was announced in the University of Regina’s 2011-2012 operating budget forecast. They titled it, “Major Capital Proposal: The College Avenue Campus Revitalization,” and said it would be funded with an estimated $67 million in federal, provincial, city and university grants, as well as donations.
