I

Conestoga Students Inc. (CSI) was incorporated in 1973 and is the official student union voice representing 6,000 plus full-time, fee-paying students at Conestoga College. CSI has three core competencies: Services, Representation, and Activities. As a full-time, fee-paying student you are both a member and a client of CSI. In our eyes we will make every attempt to accomodate your expectations for a spectacular year at Conestoga. CSI is a seperate organization from the College; however, we are also very proud of our ability to partner together when striving to meet the growing needs of our students.

Services The CSI

Self Serve Area was a huge success last year. We had over 400 students through the self serve area per day, which kept us very busy. Many of our services will be FREE again this year but this area is for school related projects only. Please feel free to drop by the CSI self serve area and one of our Self Serve Supervisors can help you with any of your project needs. The CSI self serve area is located on the first floor of the Doon Campus (room 1B21)

The following services are FREE again

ACTIVITIES CSI hosts many events throughout the year. Most of our events are held in the "SANCTUARY", the student lounge here at Conestoga. Watch for some of our upcoming annual events such as the Pond Party, Toga Party, Polar Plunge and many more! To get involved or to volunteer at some of our events, please see us in the CSI office.
