Founders College Student Council (FCSC)

Kaitlin Malfara, Student Council President

Welcome to the Founders College Community!

On behalf of Founders College Student Council, I would like to welcome back our returning upper-year students and especially congratulate our incoming first-year students as they prepare for one of their greatest journeys in life. My name is Kaitlin Malfara and I am your 2015-2016 Student Council President.

I am honoured to be given the opportunity to serve over 5,000 students affiliated with our college, including YOU! Here at Founders College we host many events, programs, and services to help create the best university experience that could possibly be given. I would personally like to invite you to participate in everything that Founders has to offer for its students as it contributes tremendously to the university experience. At Founders College, we live, breathe and embrace the beloved diversity of York University. Our mandate at Founders College is Self, Culture, and Society, which we exemplify on a daily basis.

Since I started my journey here at York University, Founders College has been my home away from home. I was welcomed with open arms into a community that is so accepting, caring, and of course, fun! For those of you returning, it is a pleasure to have you as a part of the community, and to those incoming it is my pleasure to welcome you into our community. Founders College is a place of laughter, everlasting friendships, and family. It truly is a place to create unforgettable memories. Without Founders College, I wouldn’t be the person who I am today. Getting involved with my college has shaped me into the person that I am now and without it, my university experience would not be as rich as it is today. At Founders, we strive to foster a positive and welcoming community for each and every student. Being apart of Founders has been one of the most positive influences in my life – show Founders some love and believe me, you will feel the love pouring back!

Founders College has been around since 1965, which makes it York’s oldest college, and in my opinion, the best! What makes Founders the best are the people within it and the legacies that we create together. Each generation of students proudly contributes to what makes Founders great. Help us build YOUR Founders College legacy by getting involved and seeing what our college has to offer to YOU.

We want to get to know you, lend a hand when needed, hear your ideas, and see you succeed at York! Drop by the FCSC Office (FC 121B) or “The Lounge” (FC 004) to meet some amazing people! YOU have to kick-start YOUR university experience, so why not take that first step? To stay in touch with what’s happening at Founders visit our website, like our Facebook page, and follow us on Twitter (see links below) Yours in Unity,

If I haven’t met you already, I look forward to meeting you and making this one of the best years of YOUR life! Together we can live up to FCSC’s motto: “Founders United!”
