Cobie Damsel

Hi everyone, I’m Cobie. I’m a fourth-year HR student that is passionate for bringing people together and creating a welcoming community at Sauder. Coming from Winnipeg, Sauder and Vancity felt distant to me at first. But over the last few years, it has become a second home because of the incredible people and opportunities. I continue making UBC and Sauder a second home for many others through my roles in the CUS, Rezlife, Habit Course and leading this year’s wildly successful Spark 2017.

Authenticity, giving back to the community and finding balance are core to who I am as a person. These are the qualities that will enable me to serve you as President. With your vote we will make Sauder home away from home where friendships, ideas and perspectives blossom.

Vote for Cobie, my homie! #Thisisourhome

What brings you happiness?

As cheesy as it may sound, happiness is when I put a smile on others’ faces. I truly care about those around me and their personal growth. Supporting my team, helping them grow and seeing them discover themselves are the most enjoyable parts of being VP Marketing for the CUS. I have found my community here at Sauder and I strive to help others find theirs. I hope to inspire others to pursue their passions and gain new experiences. Those desires and a million more are the reasons why I am running to be your next CUS President. During my time at Sauder I have had the privilege to be a part of the CUS Board of Directors, Sauder International Students Association, The Spark 2017 Executive Team, UBC International Business Club and CUS Visual Media. As a result I have had the opportunity to view our Sauder community from a myriad of different perspectives and gain the knowledge to take on the responsibility of being CUS President. If provided with the opportunity I hope to build a more interconnected community and a more sustainable organization. Learn more about my platform by going to
