Benefits of becoming SBESC member

Members would be exposed to activities, which require them to make quick and thoughtful decisions; a skill critical towards becoming the leaders of tomorrow. Their involvement will also enhance their interpersonal communication skills, as well as negotiation and leadership skills as there will be constant interactions with their peers, faculty members and/or members of the community. Students will also learn how to effectively manage their time, as they are required to balance studies and the various activities held within the student body. Students involvement in this student-based council should therefore be viewed as a platform, and as a starting point to enhance various skills, which are essential in the real world, after graduating from the university.
