Campus Life

The Federation of Students provides many opportunities for students to get involved in campus life. From the 200+ student-run clubs to the 12 services operated by Feds, there is a group for everyone. If an undergraduate student has a unique idea for a new group on campus, Feds will help him or her create it.
