First-Year Experience

Students walking up the stairs from the Heart of the Robbins

New friends, new places, new learning. Going to university opens the door to a whole new world of experiences.

There's a good chance you'll have lots of questions as you begin your post-secondary education. That's where Student Affairs come in. We can help take the mystery out of your first year. 

First-Year Mentorship Program

The transition to university can be challenging for some first-year students, that’s why we have created the first-year mentorship program. Participating in this program will help you establish a strong sense of belonging, familiarity and understanding of the student experience. You will be assigned to a community of other first-years led by an upper year student mentor that will organize virtual meetings, activities and direct you to other great things happening nearby. We want you to have a smooth transition to university life and are proud to showcase our positive school culture and welcome you to the family.

Watch your @mymacewan.ca email for more information and to be connected to your first-year community and mentor.
