Student Experience

Getting the hang of it

First Year Experience Mentorship Program

The School of Communication First Year Experience Mentorship program aims to provide a positive experience for incoming students transitioning into their first year at SFU.

Mentors help welcome new students, connect them to people and resources, and make their first year experience a great one! All incoming Communications students from the Spring 2019 term are welcome to contact a current student volunteer mentor to:

  • Support | Get support & your questions answered from a fellow student who’s been through it before
  • Connections | Make friends and connect with other students, staff, and professors
  • Community | Be part of a community of other first year students and attend events together

How does it work?
