Here’s what your SFSS Board of Directors has been up to during the month of August:

The SFSS Board of Directors has had a fulfilling September to begin the Fall semester. 

We welcomed students at SFU Burnaby, Surrey, and Woodward’s with a Clubs Week, Welcome Back BBQ, and Pancake Breakfast. In addition, our VP External Relations (Jasdeep Gill) and VP Student Services (Christina Loutsik) gave some back to school tips through a Breakfast Television interview!

As a Board, we participated in a myriad of activities this past month. We collectively advocated on behalf of students to be granted Academic Amnesty so that they had the opportunity to participate in the Global Climate Strike without any repercussions. In addition, we participated in the Campus Services & Resources Fair at the Vancouver campus, FASS Fest, EVOLVE by CMNSU, and Changemaker Academy. Also, our President (Giovanni Hosang), VP University Relations (Shina Kaur), and VP External Relations (Jasdeep Gill) were interviewed by Cable Public Affairs Channel (CPAC) regarding the upcoming election and how we will be encouraging students to vote in this year’s Federal Election. Lastly, a big shoutout to our VP Student Life (Jessica Nguyen) and her Events team for putting on a Fall Kickoff we will not forget! It was followed up with a sold out Kickoff After Party at The Study!

We hope you enjoyed all these events and activities and support in the advocacy efforts. Good luck to all in the fall semester and we hope to see you at the SUB Sneak Peak!
