September is quickly approaching and normally this would be the time of year that the Students’ Union invites local businesses and community organizations onto campus to welcome students back to TRU at the Back-to-School BBQ. This annual tradition serves to introduce new and returning TRU students to local businesses and community organizations.  

We are unable to host the celebration this year, but we are looking to continue that tradition and partnership with local businesses in a digital format. We are inviting Kamloops businesses to join the Deals Program! This program is a provincial discount app that is free for students and free for businesses. It serves as an opportunity to introduce your business to students in a digital format while providing a comprehensive discount listing for students in our community. To sign up your business for a listing on the app, you just have to offer a student discount. We will advertise your business and your discount to TRU students through the app as well as our website, email, and social media. 

How to Join the Program

Contact our Entertainment Coordinator Parth Patel at to sign up your business to offer a discount. He will be happy to work with you to create your listing on the Deals app and promote your business to students in September!
