Founders College Student Council (FCSC)

Joanne Huy, 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 embark on the next phase of their journey through life!  My name is Joanne Huy and I am your 2013-2014 Student Council President.  I am honoured to have the opportunity to serve over 5,000 students affiliated with our college, including YOU!

I would like to extend an invitation to you to take part in our events, programs and services. 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.

At first glance, Founders College may appear to be just a building like any other on campus, but Founders is so much more. I am proud to say that Founders has been my home away from home, and it is my pleasure to welcome you to our community. Founders is a place for laughter, lasting friendships, and family; a place to create unforgettable memories.  My involvement 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. 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)!

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!”

Yours in Unity,
Joanne Huy
