The lack of students who consider it important that the DSA provide financial aid to college services is surprising considering the benefits. Perhaps Conestoga College students don’t realize has put into supplying the how much money the college with quality resources for students. has donated In the 1999-2000 school year the $84,000 to the technology wing in-fill addition, $30,000 to the broadcast program for a DJ booth, $3,450 to the recreation centre for a Vectra 4800 exercise machine, $5,500 to the learning resource centre for a data video projector, $1,250 to student services for a computer, $3,525 to security for a closed-circuit television security system, $2,250 to special needs for monitors and keyboards, $4,300 to the Ontario

The money used for these donations comes from the fee students pay with their tuition and from a slush fund, revenue which the DSA, a non-profit organization, has created over the past five to seven years. The DSA has also donated to several other worthy Association,

Students should be getting the most out of the program they are in and acquiring the skills to be successful in the workplace, but the donations to the college improve student life considerably. The contributions to the community reflect on Conestoga students as caring people who want to make a difference in the world around them. The DSA does a terrific job of providing financial support for college services, as well as representing the students in an honourable fashion. Students should recognize the contribution the DSA makes to student life and the educational experience at Conestoga through their financial support to college
