We do things like:

  • Bringing community events to life
  • Hosting fundraising initiatives
  • Helping the campus make better decisions for students
  • Advocatingand representing the student body


Your feedback is important

To fulfil our role as student advocates, we need to hear from you.

Share with us your thoughts, comments and suggestions on how we can make your student experience even better with your SRC members
 



Joining the SRC is a great way to get involved in your community, meet awesome people, build your leadership skills and contribute to helping the student body get heard.
