The First Nations Student Association (FNSA) is run by and for Indigenous students at Camosun College. FNSA was formed to address the specific concerns of Indigenous students, and to provide a comfortable place for students to go. FNSA’s mandate is to meet the social, cultural, and recreational needs of Indigenous students.
The FNSA Gathering Place is located on Lansdowne campus in Young Building 314. It is a nice environment for Aboriginal students to get to know each other. Students may 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!
The FNSA also partners with the UVic Native Students Union, the Victoria Native Friendship Centre (VNFC) and the Songhees Employment Learning Centre to coordinate Elders’ Dinners on a regular basis. For further information with dates and times, please check the notice board outside the Eyēʔ Sqȃ’lewen office.
