SAIT’s new sexual assault and sexual violence policy hopes to create and reinforce an environment in which survivors feel comfortable coming forward. SAIT is the second post-secondary in Alberta to have an official sexual assault and sexual violence policy and procedure.
SAIT Archivist Karly Sawatzky explains the 100 year history of SAIT’s institution. Opening in 1916, SAIT was originally in the Colonel James Walker School in Calgary, and had only 11 students. Currently located on its new campus, SAIT now has 14 main buildings on site, and approximately 50,000 current students.
“It’s a great opportunity to know the city,” says Marnie Shaw, a first timer volunteer for YYC Doors Open. Shaw points out that there are many things happening around us and we don’t even know about it.

This centenarian sure knows how to throw a party. On Sunday, Oct. 16, SAIT celebrated its first 100 years with a 700-pound birthday cake, the opening of a time capsule from 1966 and, to cap off the evening, a spectacular on-campus fireworks display. Second-year photojournalism majors were in attendance and filed a set of fun-filled pictures that capture the spirit of the day.
