The Students' Union of St. Jerome's University aims to provide a variety of services in addition to its traditional advocacy role for students. We are proud to offer programs and services that have proven to be in need at the St. Jerome's campus. You can view the current programs and services that we offer below. If you would like to propose or work with the Students' Union to implent a new program or improve an existing one, send an email to the Communications Officer.
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.

Inspired by Jim Cramer, this club works to educate students about the stock market so they can feel more comfortable investing money on their own. Stocks clubs hosts regular meetings at beginner and intermediate levels. They are always looking for new members, so feel free to visit their website to learn more about what they have to offer.
The Farmer's Basket at St. Jerome's University offers an opportunity for students of the community to receive high quality, nutritious food, at an affordable price. We've partnered with Dana Hospitality to bring a valuable service to SJU. Community members can signup for this program with us and receive a high quality basket of locally sourced* fruits and vegetables. The baskets come in two sizes, the Snack Basket and Chef's Basket. The Snack Basket is a smaller portion of produce made to last one person one week, while the Chef's Basket is a larger portion for someone who cooks more or feeds more people. The Snack Basket is $10.00 while the Chef's Basket is $16.00, and if you show your Watcard you can get a $2.00 discount! The contents of the Farmer's Basket change every month depending on what’s in season/available. (*Dana Hospitality attempts to utilize food items from locations that are as local as possible. However, some items which are out of season or not grown in Canada are not able to be purchased locally).
Baskets are easily accessible and available for pickup in the St. Jerome’s cafeteria each month. If this sounds like a program you are interested in, complete the registration form below. Feel free to tell your friends about our program so we can make sure as many students benefit from this service as possible. This program is available to anyone in the University of Waterloo and surrounding community.
