Meet the Students' Union Team

The Students' Union of St. Jerome's University is here to support your experience as a student of the University of Waterloo. We hope that we have the opportunity to connect with many students at the university so that we can express your concerns at St. Jerome's Board of Governors, WUSA Council, St. Jerome's Senate Council, and Committee meetings. You can learn a little bit about us below so that you can recognize and talk to us around campus. You can always stop by our office to chat or share your ideas!
