Keep checking in for further updates!
Brock Move-In Day: September 2nd from 8AM -12PM
Just like last year, our Executive Team will come together to support our Baby Badgers as they leave the nest and settle into their new homes at Brock! Along with other club members, we will assist students as they move into residence. Yes, this means carrying multiple fridges and boxes upon boxes, but all for the sake of making our first-years feel as comfortable as they can! Welcome Baby Badgers!
Vendor & Clubs Fair: September 4th & 5th from 10AM - 4PM @ Weather Station Field
Vendor Fair is the best way to become familiarized with the multitude of services, programs, and organizations available to students. Be sure to check it out because contests and giveaways will be happening throughout the course of each day, including a GK Swag Pack presented by yours truly! So don't forget to pop by the Golden Key booth for everything you need (and want!) to know about our organization. Ask us as many questions as you'd like and see how you can get involved to make the most out of your education. Both Golden Key & Non-Golden Key Members are welcome!
GK Information Sessions:
September 7th (12PM - 1PM) & September 12th (1PM - 2PM)
Location for Both Dates: WH 205
Get to learn even more about what it means to be a part of the Golden Key International Honour Society at one of our info sessions! Both sessions will be held in the afternoon on Friday, September 7th and Wednesday, September 12th. Our Executive Team will introduce you to the many opportunities that a Golden Key Membership has to offer, including scholarship information, discounts concerning internship programs, graduate school connections, discounts on preparation courses like the GMAT, MCAT & LSAT, networking opportunities, service projects, and more! Come out and take your first step to Unlocking Your Potential!
Brock Cares Day of Service: September 8th from 8AM - 5PM
GK Members join Brock Cares on Saturday, September 8th by spending the entire day volunteering at various organizations and events within the community. This is the University's largest volunteering event! Badgers are to meet at Brock first thing in the morning & then are sent off in groups all across the Niagara Region to partner organizations!
Executive & General Member Weekly Meetings:
Beginning Tuesday, September 18th & Every Tuesday Thereafter for Fall Term
8PM - 9PM @ MCC 303
Come out and join your Executive Team at our weekly 1-hour meetings that are to be held every Tuesday night @ 8PM. We will be planning, organizing and coordinating our events and fundraisers that we intend to host for the upcoming school year. A big topic of ongoing discussion will certainly be CANCON 2019! As a Golden Key Member you have every right to voice your opinion, make suggestions, and to place your vote on current matters. We encourage all GK Members to sit in on & to participate in our meetings!
Textbook Fundraising Drive for the Whole Month of September
Drop-Off Location: Student Life Office (MCA 204)
Do you have any old textbooks that have just been sitting on your shelf collecting dust? Donate & be a part of the change! Brock University Golden Key has partnered up with Textbooks for Change to host a Textbook Fundraising Drive. For every text sold we will receive $1.25 that will directly sponsor a GK Kiddo to go to camp. What happens to your book? One of three things: 1) It will be donated to a campus in East Africa, 2) It will be recycled efficiently, or 3) It will be resold for further use! For more information about Textbooks for Change, please visit: https://textbooksforchange.com/campus/brock-university/
New Member Recognition Event (NMRE): November 16th @ Pond Inlet
Each year our Chapter recognizes Brock University students who have joined the Golden Key International Honour Society. These students have achieved status within the top 15% of their faculty, and are awarded for their academic success. This event is the first step to networking with Chapter leaders and other honorary members, and introduces students to all the benefits of a Golden Key membership. RSVP details are to follow!
