Seneca Media Unscripted: Seneca Student Federation – The Heart of Student Experience



In this episode of Seneca Media Unscripted we had the pleasure of sitting down with Radio and PR students Jeremiah Odufuwa and Nilou Alizadeh respectively both of whom work part-time for the Seneca Student Federation better known on campus as SSF.


So you may have heard of SSF in your classes, on Seneca’s website or when you were walking around campus and wondered just what this organization does for the college. First and foremost, SSF is an organization that is made up of students who represent all students at Seneca. SSF helps students with getting adjusted to student life and even life in Canada for international students who are attending college while also learning to adapt to a new culture and society.  They run social events in the Hive, around the college, and help students to set up various clubs.


There are instances when students may be experiencing some kind of difficulty in their programs and SSF is there for them, recognizing that life isn’t always a bowl of cherries.  Whether it’s contesting a grade or a misunderstanding regarding an academic infringement, such as plagiarism, SSF is there to support students so that they can move past any of these difficulties to make their experience at Seneca a positive one. Sometimes students may feel that they relate better to other students when it comes to areas such as counselling or perhaps they just need someone to talk to about a personal problem they may be experiencing. SSF is a place that prides itself on welcoming and encouraging students to come through their doors if they are in need of support.  


If working at SSF is something you are interested in, you can go to their offices and inquire more about joining their team or visit their website. It’s a great way to give back to the Seneca community, and as a bonus you will be paid as a part of their staff while gaining valuable experience that may very well pertain to your area of study. If you’re looking to find events or ways to get involved on campus, SSF is the place to start.
