Ask Me

We know the first few weeks on campus can be overwhelming. Throughout September, you'll find volunteers around campus wearing a red Ask Me button or displaying an Ask Me poster in their office. Look for the Ask Me symbols to find people who can help answer of your questions.

If you'd like to wear a button or have a poster, or have any other questions about the program, please contact askme@ucalgary.ca.
