What is the ULSU?
Simply put, the ULSU is an organization that is in place to help make your experience at the U of L as rewarding and enriching as possible. With six permanent staff, four Executive Council members, and sixteen General Assembly members, we work within the University community, but we are not part of the administration. We are students, just like you. We go to classes. We get stressed about midterms. We spend a lot of time studying.
What does the Executive Council do?
Well, the Executive Council positions are annually elected and charged with addressing the needs of students at the U of L.
We represent you to the local, provincial, and federal governments, as well as University administration. We help provide services, like the Health and Dental Plan, Food Bank, and Test Bank. We also put on a variety of events; concerts in the Zoo, Fresh Fest, and awareness weeks, just to name a few. The Executive Council, General Assembly members, and staff people of the ULSU all work hard to make the U of L a great place to get an education, but our ultimate purpose is to listen to you.
