I believe luck is preparation meeting opportunity. If you had not been prepared when the opportunity came along, you would not have been lucky. Each student upon being fully registered at the University of the West Indies automatically becomes a member of The UWI Guild of Students.The UWI Guild of Students is headed by The UWI Guild Council which serves as the official body of student representation at The University of the West Indies, Mona Campus.The UWI Mona Guild Council is comprised of: The Executive Members, Faculty Representatives and Hall Chairpersons.
The Faculty of Science and Technology Guild Committee (FSTGC) is the arm of the Guild in that Faculty. The main duty of the FSTGC is to work with the larger Guild body and Faculty Administration to voice the concerns and advocate issues on behalf of the 3000 students in the Faculty of Science & Technology. This also includes planning initiatives geared towards increasing students’ welfare and development.
We encourage you to enjoy your time here in the faculty and to make the most of your opportunities.

HOW TO GET INVOLVED
Learning continues outside of the classroom! Hence, students are encouraged to play their part and also get involved with the UWI Guild or other organizations on or off campus as these help to mould students into well-rounded individuals and into the ideal UWI graduate!
With the GUILD: Guild Council members are selected during Guild Elections which run from February to March of every year. Guild Elections are exciting times of the year. These elections are similar to National Elections, complete with campus-wide campaigning, debates, strict rules governing the elections, security and the casting and counting of ballots!
