Spring has officially sprung in Calgary; now, let’s pray it stays. Whether you’re taking up spring classes, gaining experience through an internship, or working for the summer, there are still many services available to students through SAMRU! Don’t forget to give yourselves a break and take time to relax – you’ve earned it!
