A student's guide to free stuff in September

Though the reward is great, attending university can be a challenge—deadlines are plentiful and money is tight. That’s why you have to take advantage of all the perks that come your way, like free stuff, and in no month is there more free stuff than in September.

1. Sept. 6-9 – Welcome Week
Celebrate back to school with some of Saskatoon’s best DJs in the Bowl, which start at 11 am daily. The USSU Executive will also be there handing out the USSU Survival Calendar, chock full of coupons and deals to last you the year.
And what would Welcome Week be without swag? Look out for companies all over campus handing out free goodies. 

2. Sept. 8 – Carless Drive-in
What’s better than a free movie (Mrs. Doubtfire) in the beautiful Bowl? Free popcorn to go with it, of course! The show starts at 9 pm.

3. Sept. 16 – Huskie Football Game
You already know that students get in free to Huskie home games. This year, the U of S Alumni Association—as part of its centennial celebrationsis upping the ante. Join in on the pre-game fun in Rally Alley, located adjacent to Griffiths Stadium at PotashCorp Park. In addition to fun activities and swag galore, the first 1,500 guests through the gates at Rally Alley will receive a free food voucher. It all gets underway at 5 pm at Griffiths Stadium.

4. Sept. 21 – Campus Career Expo
Aside from invaluable networking opportunities with potential future employers, the career fair is a rich resource of free pens, sticky notes and USB flash drives—essential tools to keep you organized this academic year. 10 am-4 pm at the PAC gym.
