A VOICE FOR SENECA STUDENTS
The Seneca Student Federation (SSF) offers a wide variety of programs and services to students at all four of Seneca College’s campuses, located in the greater Toronto area. The federation is made up of elected student leaders who are trained in advocacy, negotiation skills and conflict resolution. They are equipped to provide advice, guidance and success strategies to the students they represent. The federation also acts as a unified voice, bringing the needs and concerns of the student body forward to the college’s administration. Because the SSF is charged with representing students of all backgrounds and abilities, it has made a special effort to be inclusive of students with disabilities. Together with eSSENTIAL Accessibility, the SSF is providing assistive technology at no charge.
Services For You
The SSF’s services have one goal in common: To improve the student experience at Seneca College. For instance, the SSF protects your health with group insurance coverage and access to free medical care. A tax clinic helps you prepare your returns. SSF also connects you to multilingual counselling and advice, whether you’re dealing with anxiety or creating a study plan. These and other services offered by the SSF can make student life smoother.
Work With The SSF
The Seneca Student Federation is one of the college campus’s largest student employers, with part-time jobs available in addition to full-time positions. SSF offers flexible hours that fit your class schedule. Other benefits include the convenience of an on-campus job and the rewards of interacting with and helping fellow students. SSF employees have the opportunity to develop new skills, form fulfilling friendships, and become involved in college events and activities.
Having fun is a key part of succeeding as a student. SSF’s online events calendar is packed with social activities at every campus. You can join one of the dozens of clubs and groups available, or get SSF training and assistance to start a new one! Students are also invited to apply for a Student Development Grant, a new initiative to allow students to pursue learning opportunities outside the school.
