Who knows what’s going on at the college better than the students themselves, right?

In order to better suit your needs, IGNITE relies on listening to student feedback. You’ve probably received emails from us asking for your thoughts, and let me tell you, we do love hearing from you.

At IGNITE Connect, you’ll have the chance to talk directly with IGNITE full-time staff and student advocates. This is your opportunity to tell us what you think needs to change, what’s not quite working right and even what we’re doing well and should keep investing in. If you’ve got any questions about your student life, our experts will be there to help!

Staying in touch with your student union and constantly sharing your feedback are important duties you have as a student because your voice has the power to foster change for the better.
