First-Year Learning Communities

Offered by : N/A

Join a supportive community of 25-30 students from some of your large first-year courses. You will meet every-other-week for academic, developmental, and social activities facilitated by two upper-year students with the support of staff and/or faculty advisors. FLC sessions address the various transitions you encounter during your first year of university, with topics like study strategies, campus traditions and history, mastering tests and exams, choosing a program of study, and career explorations. There will also be recreational, social activities, and much more!
