Janice writes "Being the Health and Environment Councillor (2006) has inspired me to pursue landscape architecture to create/improve the environment for the well-being of the community or society. I especially enjoy the sense of being in a big family where students are given the opportunity to lead and unleash their potential with the guidance and advice from staff. I would urge IS students to make the best of the opportunities to integrate with fellow students and staff in both studies and activities."
