First Year Peers are upper-year students that help first year students in their transition to university. Over the summer and prior to classes, your First Year Peer will contact you via email in order to share resources and to answer your questions. First Year Peers also host First Year Learning Communities and First Year Events.
Beginning in June and throughout the school year, you will receive regular emails from your First Year Peer. Your First Year Peer will share important resources, remind you of important dates and deadlines, and respond to your questions.
