Whether you are a new student entering the university atmosphere or a continuing student, I am humbled by the fact that I have the opportunity to welcome you to the energetic community that is Founders College!

It is in this role as President that I will be working to create an environment that students affiliated with Founders College will be able to thrive and reach their full potential. Whether it be advocating for students or networking with clubs, groups or alumni, what can be said for sure is that this coming year will present YOU the opportunity to make your life at university enjoyable.

When one thinks of History, it may simply be said that it is the study of the past. However, the depiction of History has a deeper meaning to Founders College because those in the past have been able inspire others to explore opportunities they may not have done so before including myself.

With that being said, I wish you the best of luck with your studies throughout the year and do not be afraid to connect because at the end of the day, we are all students that wish to see each other succeed.

Alejandro Barreto
President, Founders College Student Council

A Message from your Vice-President Operations

Hello Founders!

First, I would like to welcome back all our returning students and congratulate the graduating ones. It has been a pleasure spending time with all of you.

To all the new members, welcome to Founders College, a place where both education and great experiences are made and valued! You are beginning a new chapter in your life here at York University. It will be a challenging yet exciting and illuminating journey for you. Founders may be small, but we are still one of the most caring communities of devoted faculty, staff and students. Once you join us, prepare to be a part of the Founders family.

I am currently in my second year at York University and so far, Founders has been like a second home for me. It is a place where I have had many laughs and shed some tears, but through it all, the Founders community has always had my back. I have made friends that I cherish and experiences that I will remember for the rest of my life, and I know you will do the same!

I encourage you to set goals for your university life and work hard to achieve them. Study hard as academic excellence should not be compromised. Explore, enjoy and fill your life with meaningful activities. If you ever need any help, my door will always be open.

I look forward to welcoming you during Orientation Week and to celebrating the commencement of your journey of embracing knowledge, ideas and wisdom. I hope you all enjoy the upcoming year at York , and have the best experiences possible. It will be an amazing journey!
