Dear Sponsor,

The Thompson Rivers University Students’ Union invites your organization to participate in its annual back to school events from September 6 to September 19, 2019. These events are a chance for students to start the academic year with a bang and to become acquainted with their fellow students, faculty, staff, and members of the community.

Our Back to School events are well-established series of events that draws more than 7,000 students. This year’s events include the Back to School BBQ, Clubs Day, and an Outdoor Movie Night and Food Truck Festival. Participating in these events will allow you to reach out to new and returning students.

Your support is a vital part of these events and of the University experience. As a Sponsor, your organization will be able to help us enhance our advocacy, services, and entertainment and provide the best possible experience for our members.  Your contribution will go a long way in assisting us in providing an incredible start to the 2019/2020 student experience at Thompson Rivers University.
