General Manager

Hello Everyone,

My Name is Jeyas Balaskanthan and I am your General Manager for the Graduate Student Association of the University of Waterloo.

I am excited to be working with the student executive team to enhance the student experience both academic and social for our graduate students. I have been working in post-secondary institutions for the past twenty years working in various areas from housing, student services, hospitality services, and student experiences at the undergraduate level. I have gained a lot of experience working with great people during my time. I am excited to bring my experience to work along with our executive team and the staff team to support our graduate student experience.  

I am a graduate of Wilfrid Laurier University and a proud Laurier Alumni. Away from my work, I am involved locally with a service club that supports youth and enhances their social/leadership experiences. I have also been part of some of the standing committees with the city of Waterloo and these committees help with funding local projects to enhance the day-to-day living experience for our community members. 

I am a passionate sports fan, following the Raptors very closely, and am lucky to be able to attend a lot of games on a regular basis. I also follow Manchester United and Toronto FC closely. I have been very lucky to have attended a match at Old Trafford to watch the Red Devils play live. In addition to basketball and soccer, I also follow cricket, NFL, NHL, and MLB.

I am always interested in what is happening around us in our local community, our country, and this wide world of ours.  If we can be kind and good to those who are around us and close to us we can continue to make a positive impact in our communities.   

I am Looking forward to meeting the graduate student members and working with you all to make your student experience a great one.

The GSA offices are on the 3rd floor of SLC.  We welcome you to drop by and say hello.

Thank You
Jeyas Balaskanthan
