All undergraduate students, full-time or part-time, registered in the Communication program are members of the Communication Students' Association (CSA). The CSA is designed to give its members, as future communicators, a voice not only within the Faculty of Arts, but also throughout the campus, and to the Senate.

This committee makes its influence felt in the academic, cultural, economic and social matters. The CSA executive committee is elected in March of each year. Members of the CSA sit on several departmental committees as well as the Faculty council. Members of the CSA are always receptive to your comments and suggestions.


 The CSA invites the students to participate in various activities within the Department.

  • CMN improvisation team
  • La Rotonde (French newspaper of the University)
  • The Fulcrum (English newspaper of the University)
  • CFUO (University radio station)
  • Vision Campus (television productions)
  • Class representative
