Portfolios and Committees

Social Committee: 

The Social portfolio is run by WCSA’s Vice President of Social Affairs, Ashley Vadivelu, alongside the Associate Director of Social Affairs, Francyves Shanira. This portfolio aims to host academic support events, de-stressing activities, and initiatives that unite students across our college to strengthen our community. In addition, this team operates the Social Committee in which interested students can volunteer their time - while earning a CCR credit - to help out with different initiatives and events undertaken by the portfolio. A few fun events that the social portfolio is responsible for include Red Party, the annual Gala in the spring, and overseeing Orientation Week at the beginning of the year. Even if you decide not to join the Social Committee, we hope to see you at one of our events this year! If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please feel free to reach out via email (vp.social@mywcsa.com and associate.social@mywcsa.com) and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
