July 14th, 2017: Welcome to APSA Website Upgrades 🙂

The APSA website is currently undergoing busy revamping and internal upgrades to bring it up-to-date to current information and events. As the IT Director, I would like to extend a warm welcome to visitors of the site, and I apologize in advance for any inconveniences the current construction is causing. Also, a warm welcome to incoming first year students in the Class of 2021; we are busy working on the website to provide you relevant information and services. Notably, an Academic Resources section has been added for easy access to useful academic and study material.

Please do not forget to check out the First Years Information Page for useful checklist and information. Thank you for your continuing understanding and patience! If you have any questions or concerns about the website, please feel free to contact me – Frank Huang – at fhuang1@ualberta.ca.
