More At Loyola

During the 2011 CSU elections, I will be voting for team Your Concordia.

Apart from their down to earth campaign approach I, for starters, like the fact that Your Concordia took the time to inform students about what exactly the CSU was.

I found this personally helpful because even I wasn’t 100 per cent sure of all the logistics behind the school politics. The fact that Your Concordia wants to get students more involved in the student union is great since this is, after all, our school, and we are the ones that have to live with any decisions made.

Furthermore, being a full-time student that only goes to Loyola campus, I agree with their goals of wanting to improve the Loyola campus spaces. The Hive Café would be a great place to go to eat affordable food while engaging with other students. Large “hang-out” spaces like this are not available to Loyola students and would be great to increase the interaction among students in different faculties.

Personally, I would like to see a stronger presence of the CSU on Loyola since, in my opinion, this will encourage students to get more involved with projects that affect us directly. Due to the CSU’s lack of presence on Loyola and their limited office hours, I don’t feel encouraged to get involved.

Your Concordia is striving to connect and support all the students in order to create a strong group of educated and proactive individuals capable of changing our school for the best.
