My name is Jason and I would like to announce my candidacy for Vice-President of the Computer Science Student Society for this Spring term. I am a 4th year student working towards a Bachelors in Comp Sci. I have been at SFU for a year now and have been involved in various CSSS meetings and events.
This society has given me a lot not only in terms of academics and allowing me to connect with like-minded individuals who have provided a great study environment and therefore has allowed me to progress through such gruelling courses as MACM but I have also seen the sense of camaraderie that this society encourages and nurtures that isn't very common among other departments and I would like to make sure these aspects of our society continue. To allow our society to serve as a much-needed home away from home with the social events that take place.
I am a great candidate for this position because of my desire to ensure that our great society continues to see the ongoing success of such programs like Hack Time, and the great opportunity that exists for all of us with the Co-op program.
I am now returning to SFU from my second co-op placement, the most recent one with SAP. My experiences with Co-op have given me a great insight into how valuable that experience is and I would like to share that experience with others and ensure that others also get the same opportunity to advance their academic and professional careers with this tool that SFU is offering us.
Due to my lighter course load this term, I will also be able to be more actively involved in CSSS meetings and events and will ensure the availability of Hack Time every week.
Finally, I promise to bring my famously cheerful attitude and demeanor to this position while carrying out the duties of this office. I also have a wonderful working friendship with our current Vice-President which will allow for a very smooth transition.
