Students’ Council is made up of students — just like you!

We are here to advocate; to be the voice for the students.
We are here to support; to listen to students.
We are here to celebrate; to provide opportunities for students to connect, share and have fun!

We are student leaders and we are here to make a difference.
We connect with students so we can represent students.

Students’ Council has 9 seats broken out into the following positions:

  • 4 Health & Community Studies Representatives
  • 4 Foundational, Career & Intercultural Studies Representatives
  • 1 Regional/Distance Representative

Despite being from different faculties, all members of Students’ Council have the same role; to represent and safeguard the academic rights of students at NorQuest College.

I am here to make sure you have fun. One of my favorite events was the Family Halloween Party. I dressed up like eagle and did my version of the chicken dance with all the kids.

It was awesome to see so many smiley faces.

I am here to help make your voice heard. In the past year I have been able to meet with other student leaders around Alberta. Together, we lobby the government on issues that impact students like tuition, mental health funding and transferability.
