Both Surrey and Simon Fraser University are growing in population, but the campus size is staying the same. As semesters go by, it is becoming more difficult for students to find places to study at school, get into their desired classes, or even be able to stay at the campus that is closest to their home– the case for the thousands of Surrey students who are forced to make the commute to Burnaby Mountain or even the Downtown Vancouver Campus. We want Surrey students of now and the future to spend less time travelling, and more time studying and enjoying their university experience. Not only that, but Surrey Campus lacks an appropriate fitness facility for students, and residence for those coming out of town are nonexistent. This means students who are exclusively located at Surrey Campus but also need residence, have to commute from Burnaby Mountain to Surrey every day.
Help us created a movement to expand SFU Surrey by signing our petition at our Downtown Surrey BIA tent at Movies Under the Stars this weekend at Holland Park, and use #GrowSFUSurrey on Twitter to voice why you want an expanded campus.
