Union Clubs

Media Folder: 

 

 

Each semester the Students' Union accepts applications for students of St. Jerome's University to launch their own clubs. Each club becomes a subsidiary of the Students' Union. We aim to support clubs financially and through active mentorship. The purpose of the clubs program is to empower students to create opportunities for themselves and fellow students; to target passionate niches in the community not currently fulfilled by existing St. Jerome's leadership groups. You can view our current clubs below. If you would like to start a Students' Union club, send an email to the Students' Union Communications Officer to get started.

It’s a great chance to get some food, meet some awesome people, and have your voice heard. Students’ Union tries to host at least one Town Hall a term.

SJU Student Resource List

Are you wondering how to access resources while campus is operating differently? Your Students' Union team has put together a list of on- and off-campus resources, along with directions for how to access support. On the resource list, you can find information about mental and physical wellness resources, community care and support, academic resources, co-op resources, and financial aid. This resource list is live and will be consistently updated, so if you know of a resource that should be included on the list, send us an email at pres.su@sju.ca!
