Used Book Sale
At the beginning of each semester SAGPRC runs a used book sale in our office (Room G123). This is an opportunity to make a little cash from old textbooks students may no longer need, and also give them the opportunity to purchase those pricey textbooks at a cheaper rate then if purchased new!
SAGPRC is composed of 4 Student executives who are in charge of the operation and are the leaders of our organization, these students are democratically elected each March to serve a 1 year term beginning in May. SAGPRC also elects a Student Council composed of 9 students. These students act as a board and are charged with the governance of the Students’ Association. Councillors are elected each September and serve an 8 month term.
Health and Dental Plan
SAGPRC is committed to the well-being of our students so we believe each student should have access to health care. Our Health and Dental Plan covers everything from vision coverage to tuition insurance.
Mental Health and Peer Counselling
We understand how stressful school can be and we want to make sure students are receiving all the support they need. SAGPRC currently funds the Peer counselling program on campus, this is a safe place to discuss any concerns or problems you may have. We also run Mental Health weeks to help students de-stress and prepare for exam season.
Howler’s Cafe & Lounge
Howlers is student owned and operated! If you’re looking to relax and enjoy a nice cup of coffee or a refreshing beer, Howlers is that place. Howlers runs many events throughout the school year such as our very popular Open Mic Night’s on Thursday Evenings.
SAGPRC has an office at Fairview campus dedicated to servicing all our students at Fairview. Many events such as movie nights, pub nights, sundae bars & BBQ’s are hosted at the Fairview Campus. If you have any questions regarding the services offered at Fairview please email SAGPRC’s Fairview Manager, Jennie Smeenk, at firstname.lastname@example.org
