About the program

The program provides community and mentorship for first- and second-year students. The program also provides tips on how to successfully navigate university life.

Each semester, you will be invited to attend a meeting with other first or second year Kinesiology students. The meetings last about one hour and include large and small group activities led by Kinesiology student and alumni volunteers.

A few of the topics covered over the year include:

  • transitioning from high school to university
  • the importance of mental health and self-care
  • university learning beyond the classroom
  • communicating with professors
  • equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI), and community-building
