WHAT IS VOCA?

We are a terrific group of dedicated students -- a group of commuters, working for commuters.

 

We love Victoria College, and we’re here to make the commuter life the best life possible!

 

We want to spread this enthusiasm to all students, so that when it comes time for each of us to leave, we know that we have played our part in improving the
university experience (and have enjoyed it, too!)

About Us

VUSAC's Commuter Commission

We are here to represent the commuter student body at Victoria College and to improve commuter student life on campus.

 

For those who are unfamiliar with what we do, VOCA has free weekly pancake brunches (which are open to ALL students) and many other fun events throughout the year like movie and trivia nights, karaoke, and more!

 

Our key event of the year, Home for
the Holidays, is a large holiday market hosted in Old Vic in November.

 

We also offer several services such as free locker rentals (located in the Goldring basement), and oversee and maintain the commuter lounge and commuter kitchen spaces.

Co-Chairs

VOCA is run by two Co-Chairs:
the Commuter Commissioner
the Co-Chair.

 

The Commissioner differs from the Co-Chair only in that they have additional responsibilities to VUSAC as a voting member, and are required to sit on additional committees/boards.

 

The Commuter Commissioner is elected during the Spring Elections and the Commuter
Co-Chair is hired in the spring.
