The Camosun College First Nations Student Association
The First Nations Student Association (FNSA) is run by and for Aboriginal students at Camosun College. FNSA was formed to address the specific concerns of Aboriginal students, and to provide a comfortable place for students to go. FNSA’s mandate is to meet the social, cultural, and recreational needs of Aboriginal students.
The FNSA Student Room is located on Lansdowne campus in the Young building, room 314. It is a nice environment for Aboriginal students to get to know each other. Students may use the computer, as well as a microwave, coffee machine, tea kettle, and fridge. Students gather here to talk, to eat, to share information with each other, and even to do homework! FNSA also operates a food program for those in need.
The FNSA partners with the Native Students Union at the University of Victoria, the Victoria Native Friendship Centre and Songhees Employment Learning Centre to coordinate Elders’ Dinners on a regular basis. For further information with dates and times, please check the notice board at the Aboriginal Education office. There is also a Winter Feast in December.
