“Being a part of the UAA has given me the opportunity to be at the forefront of the most interesting campaigns and decisions at SFU. I’ve gotten the opportunity through UAA to be a part of the change on campus on campaigns such as the Gondola campaign, Open-ed, Ban the Bottle, and other student advocacy initiatives. Thanks to this committee I am always weeks ahead of the next big thing on campus and would recommend this committee for those who are passionate about advocacy and student concerns.”
