Hello everyone! I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who participated in the recent election. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve, and to represent the interests of fellow students at one of the premier schools in Canada. I look forward to helping you make the most of your time here, at the University of Waterloo.
Let me share with you a bit about my role as councillor of the Federation of Students. It is the mission of the Federation of Students:
To foster undergraduates' pursuit of higher learning, personal growth and an enhanced quality of student life through the provision of information, resources and services conducive to self-development, mutual respect and involvement.
In-line with the mission statement, my responsibilities, as the Math Co-op Councillor of the Federation of Students are:
Over the next few weeks, I hope to provide you with information to get you up-to-date on issues currently discussed at Council meetings. I will try to report to you, at least once a month to keep you on top of any new issues and developments.
In the meantime, let me encourage you to get involved in the many activities available to you campus-wide. I truly believe that there is more to a university education than books, lectures and assignments. Some of the most interesting lessons you will learn and things you will discover will come out of your experiences outside of the lecture hall. It is up to you to take advantage of the opportunities. Central to the strength and success of all the clubs and organizations on campus, including the Federation of Students, is YOUR participation.
In my campaign, I vowed to make myself available to members of the Math Co-op constituency, to discuss any issues pertinent to the Federation of Students. To this end, I extend an invitation for lunch to all students in my constituency any day of the week (between 11:45 and 12:45). I encourage you to leave me a note in my mailbox at the Federation of Students Office (in the SLC) or to leave me a message at 888-4042.
Thanks again for having chosen me to be your representative to the Federation of Students.
P.S. Here is a list of some of the clubs and organizations on campus. Pick one TODAY and find out what they're all about.
