A look back at Week of Welcome 2016

For faculty and staff

Join us in welcoming new and returning students to SFU for the start of their Spring term! The Ask Me Program has returned and we are looking for staff and faculty to participate in one of two ways:

  1. Pick up a red ASK ME button to wear from Tuesday January 2—Friday January 5.  Wear the button throughout the week and be prepared to answer questions from students.  Buttons can be picked up at the Surrey, Burnaby or Vancouver campus. Email Paige (plabar@sfu.ca) or Cara (cara_bethel@sfu.ca) to arrange a pick-up time.
  2. Sign up for a shift during Week of Welcome at the Burnaby campus January 3 - 5.  Fill in the websurvey to sign up for a one hour shift during the first week of classes. During your shift you will be assigned an area on campus with an Ask Me sign to assist students with directions and answering questions.

Thank you for helping us create a positive student experience! Your involvement helps to strengthen our campus community.
