Whither Goes Your Stud. Ass. Fee?

Whither Goes Your Stud. Ass. Fee?

"Where does the Students' Association fee go?"

This is a question which is often asked by freshers and is of interest to all students.

The revenue from this source, after a small deduction by the College office of a collection fee, is administered by the Executive which is elected annually by students.

A predetermined part of each fee goes automatically to the Building Fund, which one day will be spent on a Students' Union.

The major portion is used in grants to sporty and cultural clubs; the running of social functions (including tournaments, tea dances, balls, under-grads' supper, Extrav., Capping, etc); the issue of College publications (Salient and Spike); and in administering the cafeteria. The wages of the office assistant and payments for upkeep of the gym., etc., are also charges met by this money.

The 'Students' Association caters for a wide diversity of student interests as will be noted from the list of Clubs given below.

Victoria's fee is extremely reasonable when compared with other NZ University Colleges, where extra fees are paid for joining each club.

On payment of the Student's Assn. fee you automatically become a member of all the following clubs, all clubs welcome new members:
