Camosun College Student Society – an organization by students, for students

The society’s frontline role is to implement valuable services and programs for students.

Each September, thousands of new and returning students enter the halls of Camosun College eager to obtain education, skills, and culture. Each of these students belongs to the Camosun College Student Society (CCSS), a student union that uses three approaches –– services, advocacy and events – to meet the needs of its student members.

The society’s frontline role is to implement valuable services and programs for students. The most popular of these services include health and dental coverage, which gives affordable coverage to students; the universal bus pass, which provides transportation at a fraction of the regular bus-pass rate; and the International Student Identity Card, a card that provides students with local and international discounts at a wide range of retailers, restaurants, and services.

The CCSS collaborates with the BC component of the Canadian Federation of Students, the UVic Students’ Society, and other partners to advocate for students within the college and at the federal, provincial, and municipal levels.

With the upcoming federal election the CCSS will be focused on an awareness and voter registration campaign to encourage Camosun’s students to express their voice at the ballot box.

To promote the social aspects of attending school and to inspire members to make friends and get involved the CCSS encourages students to participate in clubs and other on-campus activities. From pubs to Camfest welcome-back activities, CCSS events benefit students by bringing life to campus by offering an opportunity for students from all disciplines to interact in a fun, social environment.

If you are a new student, a returning student, or a member of the Camosun community, be sure to join CCSS on Sept. 8 at Lansdowne and Sept. 10 at Interurban for the annual welcome-back event known as Camfest. At some point, your student life at Camosun will be made easier, more fun, or better for your wallet as a direct result of the work of Camosun College Student Society.
