The Centennial Student Union is the students’ House of Serendipity offering pleasant surprises that INVITE, INVOLVE and INSPIRE.
"I like to call the Union the House of Serendipity. You go for one thing and you get more than you bargained for. It's inescapable. It gets into your head and into your heart, and you're never the same again. The right union will change you." - C. Shaw Smith Association of College Unions International
