Admin HistoryThe Westfield College Union Society (WCUS) was formed in Mar 1920. Prior to this date both Students' and College meetings were regularly held to discuss relevant issues affecting the students of the College. The College meetings were attended by the Principal, staff, and students. Following the establishment of the WCUS, the Principal became Honorary President and the Senior Student became the Executive President. All College clubs and societies were affiliated to the WCUS. The WCUS had two standing committees: the General Committee, and the Executive Committtee. Union meetings continued to be held under the titles of College meetings and Students' meetings, the latter being held at the discretion of the President of the Union.
