[OPIRG-EVENTS] Radical Frosh

Sorry for any cross- posting. Please forward to anyone who may be

OPIRG- Carleton is organizing an alternative to Orientation Week for this
September by implementing "Radical Frosh." As with any event, the interests
of all students cannot be met, and thus, OPIRG is developing a program that
reaches out to a group of students that are often ignored in mainstream

Radical Frosh will be a week of events concentrating on social justice and
environmental issues, with a focus on anti- oppression. This orientation
program will run the first week of September. Many of the workshops will 
also be
open to the wider community. Radical Frosh provides approximately 50 
Carleton students with the opportunity to meet other students with similar
interests and explore a range of social justice issues and organizations.
Radical Frosh has a packed line-up of activities - including workshops,
radical tours of Ottawa, live music, and more.

Radical Frosh 2003 runs from August 30th - September 6th, 2003. Groups and
individuals are encouraged to contact OPIRG- Carleton if they are interested 
in putting on a workshop, contributing to our frosh bag, or would like to 

Volunteer Frosh leaders are needed to lead groups and help out in
workshops. There is mandatory training session which will take place during 
the week
of August 23- 28th.  (TBA) This training will include anti- oppression
training as well as a general explanation of the RadFrosh program. At this 
time, you
will be able to sign up for shifts and learn what your specific role as a
volunteer entails. Please note that to be a volunteer you do not need to be
a student!

If you are interested in volunteering, please reply to this message and

bags, please let us know. By providing a pamphlet from your group or free
