The Continuing Education Students' Association of Ryerson (CESAR) was looking for class reps and when no one else in my classes this term wanted the job, they had me at "free dinner". The class representatives are expected to attend general membership meetings and act as liaisons between CESAR and other students, passing on any concerns and information. Well, turns out those meetings are kind of a big deal! There are by-laws and voting cards and a whole slew of people who are rearing to change the world.
You do get free dinner (and get to feel like you're playing Model United Nations). In addition, you also get to hear about upcoming changes, new projects, resources, and all sorts of (generally) free activities coming up on campus.
WHAT: CESAR General Members Meeting
WHERE: Student Centre, 55 Gould St.
WHEN: Once a month
INSIDER TIPS: If you get a chance to volunteer for a student association, it's good fun and usually comes with catered meetings. Official student associations are usually well supported by the administration and enjoy a great deal of autonomy, influence, dynamism, and funding. If you have the time to spare, there are usually a number of executive positions up for grabs, so you can get a chance to be even more involved and pursue interests you may not have known you've had. Do it!
