Here are three facts that explain why international students choose to study at Confederation College:
1) Student Life and Resources by the Student Union of Confederation CollegeConfederation College’s mission is to help students educate and prepare them for their chosen careers. The college also realizes that sometimes students need time away from their studies to focus on hobbies or leisure activities.That’s why the school has the Student Union of Confederation College (SUCCI), a student-focused organization committed to advocacy, entertainment, well-being, employment, education and student-friendly services to enhance the overall college experience. The SUCCI aims to provide social, cultural and sports activities that allow international students to connect with fellow classmates, keep healthy, and meet new friends. Throughout the multiple campuses of Confederation College, the SUCCI held recreational events like dodgeball, 10-pin bowling, ping pong tournaments, soccer, volleyball, and more. In addition, if students can’t seem to find a club they like or have a hobby that isn’t available at the school, they can then go to SUCCI and ask them for their cooperation to form a club. Some examples of clubs created based on student requests include the Anime club, Tabletop Gaming Club, and Video Game Club. SUCCI also offers a varsity athletics and sports team open for international students. Be part of the “Thunderhawks” as they offer varsity cross-country running, curling, gold, men’s indoor soccer, women’s indoor soccer, and women’s hockey.
