St John's college student council members at Jumpstart 2023 event

A record-breaking kick-off to start the 2023-24 academic year!

It was a thrilling week for the St John’s college community as we welcomed a record number of members from all faculties of the University of Manitoba campus.

September 11, 2023 — 

The first week of the 2023-24 academic term has come and gone; what an exciting start to the year!

We started the week with our St John’s College Student Council at the Welcome Day event, where we met thousands of first-year students as they began their University of Manitoba journey.   

In talking with students, both new and returning college members, you can feel the excitement as they return to campus and into hands-on learning again with their friends.   

We spoke with our student council, SJCSA, about the week, here’s what they had to say:   

“Seeing the smiles on people’s faces and feeling the buzz around campus, it’s great to be on campus and connecting with new college members. We can’t wait for what’s ahead this year!” 


If you aren’t a member or looking for a small community within the broad UM campus, sign up here so you can enjoy our events like Jumpstart last week!   

Speaking of Jumpstart, SJCSA continued to kick off the school year with a record-breaking numbers of students attending since before the pandemic. You can read more about what Jumpstart is here 

With various students attending from all faculties, including Nursing, Science, Asper School of Business, Agriculture, Engineering, and Arts, it was a blast seeing students of all programs connect in one space again over food, games, prizes, and conversation.  

We can’t wait to see what’s in store for the rest of the year!
