As Team Gold, we care about the issues that students are going through. We understand the existing barriers that inhibit the student experience in campus life and academics. We also recognize there is a growing disconnect between Feds as an organization and the students it is mandated to serve. We want to act as a voice for all students and bring real meaningful change to this campus. We all carry a long-term vision to improve the campus experience for all students. We hope the students of this campus choose to go Gold this year and elect a team ready to serve the student body.
We Will Fight For You

As your Feds Exec, our team will fight for students at every turn.
We Will Listen To You
We have built our platform based on the views and concerns of students. We’ve spoken with students from all faculties to understand the concerns they face. We’ve consulted with student leaders and experts in their fields to ensure our goals are realistic and achievable. Our platform is the result of student consultation. As your Feds Exec, we will ensure student consultation is at the core of our governance.
Our vision for Feds, in a nutshell

We will bring back the Campus Shuttle, and build a tracking system (similar to Uber) to be added to the Portal app so students know where the shuttle is
