Kingston, ON – We are very excited to announce the unveiling of our new website after 9 months of hard work and dedication! The new website design is streamlined to make it much faster, more user friendly and navigable.

It’s important to us that information regarding our services and the resources we offer are easily accessible to our peers. We endeavor to provide the most accurate, up-to-date information in a way that allows students to engage with the AMS more easily than ever before.

Our new website allows us to do exactly that, with a more intuitive layout and improved features such as an updated clubs map, direct links to important forms and policies on the homepage, and a brand-new hiring quiz that allows people to be matched with a position within the AMS.

The AMS would like to extend a huge thank you to Zachary Slater, our Director of Information Technology, who led the charge and worked around the clock to finish the website. It was a huge undertaking and Zach’s incredible work has left an indelible mark – it isn’t every year the AMS sees such talent.

“This is something I care a lot about and put a lot of my time into, so It’s very fulfilling to see it go public. Thank you to everyone who made this possible! Also shout out to my mom.” said Slater.

We are also very grateful for the tireless work of Sarah Obonsawin, Chloe Draeger, Wayne Pender, Scott Shrempf, Bronwyn Greenhalgh, and Kassandra Greenhalgh, who were involved in various aspects of the website’s creation.
