Jason Gagnon, B.A. (Regina)

Campion Graduate Spring 2017

Jason Gagnon

Jason graduated with a Bachelors of Arts with a Double major in Economics and Political Science in 2017.

Jason’s favourite memories of Campion are still fresh on his mind. Aside from a focus on his studies, he embraced campus life by joining several student groups. He recalls his time spent with the CCSU:

“I enjoyed sitting on the Campion College Student Union (CCSU) for 2 years. Even the early morning meetings were fun since everyone on the CCSU were friends. Specifically, getting a bouncy castle at one of the University of Regina Students’ Union’s Welcome Week events was a ton of fun! A goal of Campion is to better integrate it into the University and having a major role in welcome week was a huge step towards that goal.”

Jason learned much about the student electoral process when serving as the Vice President of Student Affairs for the University of Regina Students’ Union. Getting elected to the URSU took a great effort. He conveys, “…but I am much more proud of the fact that I got to serve the students with my good friends generating the first surplus in years.”

Jason has set big goals for his future, which require carefully laid out steps. Yet the bigger the goal means not agonizing over the details:

“Eventually I would like to run my own Management Consulting firm. However, I have many other goals that I am working towards in the meantime. I am hoping to pursue a Masters of Applied Economics and Policy at the University of Windsor in the Fall and after that work towards getting the CFA designation.”

In contributing towards the community, there is one organization close to his heart. He lends his leadership ability towards the Princes’ Operation Entrepreneurship, as one of the Princes’ Charities of Canada. It provides training and education to veterans on how to run a business. Jason further adds, “I served on several committees representing the interest of students. I have advocated for students at all levels, including the Federal and Provincial Governments, as well as the University administration.”

We look forward to see how Jason’s future will take shape as he leaves Campion to embrace other challenges.
