2nd Year Student, Business Management Program

Hi! My name is Catherine and I am currently a 2nd year Business Management student. I decided to apply for this position in order to interact with more students (on a non academic level!). As a Student Life Ambassador, my goal is to inform students of all the services available on campus. Did you know that Media Works has VR, AR and 3D printing!? Those services and more are available for all students to use; many free of cost! Being an SLA also means that I get to plan fun events around campus. All around, SLAs are here to help you with any questions you may have about the resources at BCIT, so feel free to come up and chat with us!

2nd Year Student, Marketing Management Program    

Hey! I’m Faith and I am a second-year Marketing Management student majoring in Marketing Communications. Helping, supporting, and being part of someone else’s success are what drove me to become a Student Life Ambassador. As a student in BCIT, I have experienced the lifestyle of being enrolled in the institution. It is difficult and uncomfortable. Although, with the help of the services that BCIT offered, I was able to overcome my struggles as a student. From finances to my mental health, BCIT got me covered. Making sure that each student is aware of these perks is my goal as a Student Life Ambassador. Please don’t be shy to approach me if you have any questions on how to access these perks. I’ll be happy to assist you!

Hey y’all! I’m Yousef, your friendly new Student Life Ambassador! I’m currently enrolled in my first-year Accounting Diploma at the Burnaby Campus.
