The Exercise Science Students Association
The acronym ESSA stands for the Exercise Science Students Association. Located
room 301 of the Drummond Science building on the Loyola Campus (7141 Sherbrooke
West), Montreal, QC, Canada.
All students who enroll in Exercise Science automatically fall under
the umbrella of the Exercise Science Student Association. The ESSA fulfills
a dual role for its members, on the one hand it assures that students integrate
with ease to the Exercise Science community and on the other, it provides
assistance to aid the new student in handling the academic challenges presented
to them over the course of their three years in the program.
The Exercise Science Student Association was developed by students for
the benefit of students. Like most student-run associations, our goals are
to introduce the student body to a diversified student life style.
Our goals are to:
Help the students enjoy the next 3 years spent in our program to there fullest.
Create long lasting bonds with other students, professors and people involved
with the program.
Work together with our student body and teaching staff to help perfect the
program as best as possible.
ESSA is composed of 12 members.
Four members per year of study are elected by their respective peers. ESSA
is proud to announce the current members for the 2004-200 year.
President: Angela Alberga
Vice President, Internal: J. Kirby Pablo

ESSA has put much effort and countless hours towards bettering student
life. Some of our accomplishments have been:
Running the Student Learning Lab
to help improve the Learning Lab. Ex.: Full body skeleton, Books for the
Subsidising more than half of the cost for 1 weekend to the Kinesiology
Organisation of the Blood Drive and Breast Cancer Awareness Fundraiser
These objectives could not
have been achieved without fundraisers. Through out the year we have many
events, which help raise funds for the accomplishments that we have and hopefully
will continue to attain.
ESSA is a strictly volunteer-based
association. The members who are elected to represent you as a student of
the Exercise Science program at Concordia dedicated much time to maximizing
the students’ 3 years experience at Concordia University.
Our fundraisers, including our famous “Summer in November” party, are
enjoyed by many Concordia students as well as other university students. Great
fun is always at the heart of our events for our guests as well as our volunteers.
If you are interested in becoming a volunteer at one of our events, voice
your interest when the next oportunity arises!
