SAGBC joins U-Commute

U-Commute

We use it to get around: to class, to work, to meet with a friend.

Transit.

But transit is expensive; we’re all students, and the cost is not something we can ignore easily.

That’s why we will be fighting for a discounted TTC transit pass for ALL downtown students: U of T St George, George Brown, OCAD, and Ryerson. We want transit to be affordable to all of our students, and strongly believe a transit pass can make that happen.

We are your representatives. We are U-Commute, and we want this as much as you do.

Holiday food drive a success!

Between Nov. 14 and Dec. 14, the Holiday Food Drive successfully collected 375 donation bags of food, exceeding our goal of 300.

All the food donations were directly placed onto the shelves of our student food banks, immediately helping students in need across all three campuses.

We couldn’t have done it without your kind and generous hearts. The Student Association food bank family would like to sincerely thank all faculty, staff and students for all of your support and generous donations!
