BUCSC is Brescia’s heartbeat and there’s a lot of work, planning, and preparation
that goes into organizing such an unstoppable team. Your council requires training
and team building, an office where they can connect with the students, an opportunity
for recognition and morale support within council, and the ability to include supporting
and organizing roles within the team! Your council also uses their accountability
allocation to ensure a well-stocked office with plenty of prizes to be distributed
to the Brescia community. Even when council is taking care of themselves, they’re
still taking care of you.
We want you to have the opportunity to have some formal fun at Brescia’s two most
famous and anticipated events of the year: Brescia Ball and Wine & Cheese. These events
together are what unifies the Brescia community! It’s here that the BUCSC hopes, and
works to ensure that, you will make the memories that you carry with you through Brescia
Student Representative Programming
Your elected student representatives are hard at work planning not one, but two events
each! These events could be student socials, incredible speakers, or anything in between.
Have an idea for an event you would like to see happen at Brescia? Talk to your council!
We love to hear from you and want to bring you, the students, the events that you
want and need!
We want you to be fully immersed in your campus community which includes your professors
and administrators. Every year we bring you Faculty Dinner, an opportunity to connect
with your peers and professors while enjoying campus spaces and a delicious complimentary
dinner. Whether you’re looking to find a thesis supervisor or just get to know your
favourite professor a little bit better this is not an event that you want to miss.
We also plan some fantastic programming for International Women’s Day. As Canada’s
only all-women’s university, we take International Women’s Day very seriously and
hope that you will join us as we commemorate the day with speakers, events, and more!
Brescia’s Opportunity Grant is here to support you! Each student is eligible to apply

Awards & Grants
The BUCSC understands the financial strain of University and encourages you to apply
for one of our many awards. The Students’ Council Awards are given out to deserving
individuals in each year of study. The BUCSC Awards are offered for volunteerism,
international students and for demonstrating a strong commitment to supporting Brescia
students. Each year the BUCSC gives back to over 20+ students like yourself and will
continue to emphasize the importance of building community to support students in
Awareness & Inclusion
The BUCSC knows how important it is to not only be aware and informed, but also to
provide awareness opportunities for students and ensure that campus is an inclusive
space. We work to build awareness and inclusion opportunities surrounding pride, cultural
diversity, environmental initiatives, and many more! The BUCSC wants you to feel safe
and included on Brescia’s campus and, beyond that, to have an opportunity to learn
about our unique differences and experiences while we take on the university experience
Athletics & Healthy Living
Brescia is known for our incredible flag football team! This is your chance to get
to know your peers while you get moving and, hopefully, bringing home that victory
for Brescia. Flag football is a Brescia and Western tradition that you won’t want
to miss. If flag football isn’t for you that’s okay, our athletic commissioner will
be working to bring you athletic and health related events and opportunities throughout
The BUCSC wouldn’t be what it is without you, the students! We know how important
it is to show our appreciation. That’s why we plan an incredible student appreciation
week filled with fun events and freebies! What else? We provide transportation to
and from Halloween Haunt every year so that Brescia students can fully engage in the
Halloween season. At Brescia we like to finish with a bang so we will also be bringing
you Purple Finale/Carnival to close out what we know will be an amazing year!
You’re not going to want to miss the most widespread and exciting event of each and
every academic year: Homecoming! The BUCSC strives to bring you the best homecoming
experience every single year. We then carry forward that school spirit and passion
into our Baccalaureate celebration where we strive to make each Brescia grad’s experience
one to remember.
Opportunities to be Involved

as many opportunities as possible for Brescia students to be engaged on campus including
volunteering, attending events, and joining the BUCSC! Look for our volunteer week
in September for opportunities to get involved with organizations in the London community
as well, attend a RMH baking for the families. Additionally, support causes you are
passionate about by connecting with our charity commissioner on charities you’d like
to see collaborate with the BUCSC/Brescia community!
Sexual Violence & Campus Safety
The BUCSC funds training programs for our campus leaders on the fundamentals of campus
safety, safeTALK, and sexual violence awareness. BUSCSC also plans an annual Sexual
Violence Awareness week.
BUCSC is always working to improve your non-class campus spaces so that you can fully
take advantage of and enjoy the variety of activities and services available in these
spaces. From maintenance and comfort initiatives in your favourite study spots, to
ensuring that your washrooms are always well stocked with feminine hygiene products,
we hope to create spaces that are not only useful but well-used.
