“Student Council has given me the opportunity to meet and network with so many different people around Michener. This goes beyond just classmates and students, but also includes various faculty members and Michener employees in the Student Success Network and other departments. I think of my involvement as not only a résumé ​booster, but also as an opportunity for growth; growth for myself, for my classmates, and for the Michener community.” (Phillip Bailie, Michener Student Council President)


“Being part of the Charity Committee has allowed me to connect with so many like-minded individuals with the common goal of helping those in need. Their unwavering support and positivity is infectious, and it motivates me to continue charitable work in my future as a Respiratory Therapist.  It has allowed me to achieve a work-life balance, which is extremely important to me.” (Paras Jain, Charity Committee Vice President)

Michener’s facilities offer students recreational activities to maintain a healthy lifestyle:

  • Gymnasium for intramurals and pick up sports such as basketball, indoor soccer, floor hockey and volleyball
  • Squash court
  • Strength Training area with free weights, plate weights and pin-selected weight machines
  • Cardio area with a flat screen TV
  • Day lockers, saunas and showers 
  • Fully-equipped residence attached to the building

“As an out-of-province student who has lived in residence, I can definitely say that the facilities available to me have certainly enriched my life in a number of ways. Having access to a full fitness facility, including a weight room, saunas and a gymnasium has made working out easy to fit into my schedule. My life in residence has been a great experience. Everything from orientation, to having routine maintenance done in my room, has been well organized. Choosing to live in residence is a decision I would definitely make again!”  (Colin H., Genetics, Class of 2016)

“For me, Intramurals are a vital part of my Michener experience. The students involved have an opportunity to meet others from different programs, and interact with them in a fun and competitive environment. Participating in these activities has positively impacted my time here at Michener as it has become my “de-stressor”.  I love intramurals and it has made my whole experience here a more memorable one.” (Anandaganan P., Medical Laboratory Science, Class of 2016)
