New View Collective NewView is a mental wellness support group for students. It is a resource for students who suffer from mental health conditions such as anxiety, depression and school stress to come seek support from peers. It is a place to share stories, build connections, listen, share helpful resources, laugh, cry or express any emotions that may come up. It is a place to open up about those areas in our lives that are normally suppressed and difficult to share. Interactions like these build genuine connections and help those who suffer to feel less alienated and isolated. This group will facilitate meetings once a week at the St. James Campus. There will also be an online component in the form of a Facebook page and an Instagram. These online platforms are resources to summarize topics for those who may not be able to attend the meetings. They are also a great social platform to share ideas and to connect all members online. This will allow students who are members of the group to reach out to one another outside of meeting times.

Clubs

Do you love social networks? You might be on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, but how about socializing in real time? Student clubs are a great way to bring back the face-to-face contact that may be missing from your life.

Join or start a student-run club based on your personal interests, social movements, or your field of study. This is your chance to interact with a wide variety of people, expand your skill set or find a new interest.

All official clubs and associations are supported by the Student Association (SA). They receive benefits such as club funding and free use of Student Association and college spaces for meetings, events and activities.

How to start a club

It's as easy as 1, 2, 3:

  1. Find one (1) common interest or belief that you share with at least ten other students.
  2. Pick up a clubs package at any Student Association office. Be sure to make two (2) copies, one to keep for your records and one to submit.
  3. Submit your completed package to any of the three (3) Student Association offices.
