Every student who pays the compulsory annual guild fee of $175 is a member of the Guild of Students. The Student Guild Council is a body of representatives elected by the Guild of Students. Elected students are known as Guild Councilors. The Councilors recognise and voice the needs and concerns of students in the area of academics, extra-curricular activities or general student life. A Guild Councilor is the student representative of a particular committee, faculty or hall of residence. At the St. Augustine campus, the entire council meets at regular intervals to discuss and take action on important student matters.
The Returning Officer for this year’s elections was Mr. Ian Romain.
