First Six Weeks

We often refer to the first six weeks as one of the most important times during your transition to university. It's a crucial time for you to get acclimated to university, get comfortable in a new environment and start to establish a sense of belonging on campus. 

The First Six Weeks program is designed to help you navigate the transition into university. Each week you will learn academic skills, meet new people, get involved on campus and find the support you need in order to achieve your version of success!

What you can expect:
  • Develop student success skills and knowledge 
  • Learn more about campus resources
  • Opportunity to connect with faculty Peer Leaders and university staff
  • Meet other new students 
  • Snacks and refreshments 
  • The chance to win great prizes

Checklist for success in the first six weeks:

  • Attend First Six Weeks sessions.

  • Connect with your assigned Peer Leader

  • Explore what resources and supports are available to you on campus including Academic Advising, Peer Tutoring, counselling and more.

  • Pay attention to all communication that is coming from the institution. Information about Orientation, peer mentoring and more will be sent out with important dates, and calls to action. 

  • Spend time on campus outside of your classes to explore your new environment.
