As Residence Council President I decided to give back my full honorarium. The reason why I decided to do this is because we ran tight on our budget because our 3 years of prior audits that we had to get completed which were very costly and a large debt accumulated from prior years. The money that I am returning will help fund UTM Arts Festival which is a very large event at UTM that currently does not have enough funding, for a charitable poker tournament, and to help fund bursaries for students who cannot afford to go to our year end Residence Formal. I believe that students pay a lot for university, including international students who pay through the roof. They do not expect council executives to get paid, and that is why I returned this amount. Also we have pending changes to our constitution to make these positions fully volunteer in the future. As Residence Council President I have spent over 60 hours every week dedicated to make the Residence student experience better. We have created new shuttle bus times for next year and also have a sushi chef every weekday in OPH preparing lunch. Our council hopes that students really appreciate the dedication Residence Council has made to students.
