VP SOCIAL

Laren Keays

E-mail: laren.keays@usask.ca

Hey, everyone, my name is Laren and I'm the new VP Social for this year! To give you a little bit of info about me - I'm a fourth-year HR major with a passion for long walks on the beach. I enjoy music, crocheting, trashy reality TV, and of course event planning. You can usually catch me in the EBSS office with an extra-large coffee and a concerned look on my face but I swear I'm fine. If I'm not at school then I'm usually at home chilling with my cat Lennox and my roommate Rayne. I can't wait for you guys to see what events we have planned and if you have any questions feel free to ask!

PAIGE THOMPSON

E-mail: paige.thompson@usask.ca

Hey everyone. My name is Paige Thompson and I am one half of the social event director team. I am a third-year management student with many career decision crises ahead of me. This is my second year on the EBSS council and I am excited to be back planning events for you guys. I’m a big sports fan so if you see me in Moeller, I am most likely streaming a game or scrolling through the MLB power rankings to see how low the Blue Jays are. Also, not to be that person but I’m starting to get into foreign films so if you know any, hit me up with some recommendations. I’m looking forward to a unique year ahead.

OLIVIA WHITE

Hi friends! I’m Olivia and I am one of the Social Events Directors this year! It is my first year on the EBSS and second year at Edwards, and I’m super excited to learn lots and meet new people! I don’t have a major yet, so if you have any suggestions, hit me up. I’m originally from Melfort but I like living in Saskatoon because there are stores open past 5:30. Make sure to say hi if you see me in the halls at Edwards! I love to talk about rice, Kendrick Lamar, and Minecraft, so if you need a conversation starter, there you go :) When I’m not studying or napping in Murray, I’m usually teaching dance or watching The Great British Baking Show. I can’t wait to see you all at some great EBSS events this year!

REILEN VENAAS

E-mail: reilen.vanaas@usask.ca

Hello all! My name is Reilen! A little about me: I am a third-year Marketing major, Second-year EBSS member and 22nd-year human being. Between working, studying and playing sports you can find me sleeping past noon. I enjoy meeting new people so don't hesitate to strike up a conversation if you see me around campus. This is my first year as an LB5Q director and I am looking forward to planning this KILLER party with my inferior half (kidding Allie). Excited to see you all around Edwards!

ALLIE DEGENSTEIN

E-mail: allie.degenstein@usask.ca

Hey everyone! I’m Allie Degenstein, a third-year operations management major. This is my first year on council and I’m pumped to be a part of the social portfolio as one of the LB5Q event directors. I loved my past two years at Edwards and am really excited to be more involved this year! Outside of school I am a Disney fanatic and love all things dance, especially tap. Besides that, I love white chocolate, watching Gilmore Girls, and online shopping. My dream is to be on a game show one day (and win). I can’t wait to get to know everyone on the EBSS and plan some amazing events for you all!

LAUREN AUSSANT

E-mail: lauren.aussant@usask.ca

Hey Edwards! I'm Lauren, and I am excited to be one of the Formal Event Directors this year! This is my second year at Edwards and my second year on the council as well. I was a first-year Social Coordinator last year, and I loved learning new things and getting to know so many new people! I'm planning to major in accounting or finance and pursue a law degree after that! I grew up here in Saskatoon, and I'm proud to be part of the French community! When I'm not at school or studying, I spend way too much time watching Netflix, usually rewatching Friends. I also love dance, travelling, and Starbucks! I'm excited to be a part of the EBSS again this year and for the opportunity to work alongside a great group of people! I hope to see you all at our upcoming events, and don't hesitate to say hi if you see me around Edwards!

ELJAY DUNGCA

E-mail: eljay.dungca@usask.ca

Hey everyone! My name is Eljay (no, it doesn't stand for anything), and I'm in second-year business, planning to major in Accounting. I am thrilled to be planning Formal&Grad to help students grow their network. I'm also excited to represent Team Sasky for International Business for JDC West 2021. Outside of school, I like to participate in trends ironically until it becomes unironic; this is proven by when I got TikTok as a joke a month ago, but now my sleeping pattern is the only one laughing. Should you have any questions, connect with me on LinkedIn!

NATASHA LAYTON

E-mail: natasha.layton@usask.ca

Hey fam! My name is Natasha but you can call me Nat or Tash. I am this year's Athletic Director! I'm in my fourth year at Edwards where I major in Management, but this is my sixth year of University. Saskatoon is where I was born and raised, but let me tell ya it's not where I'll be staying! Once I convocate I will be travelling and it couldn't come any sooner - I am going through WITHDRAWALS!! I coach basketball and workout in my free time - these are two things I am extremely passionate about!
