FASS Connections in Burnaby

Connect with your peers

Our mission is to provide enriching and supportive connection between new FASS undergraduate students and upper-year FASS students to increase everyone's sense of belonging and well-being, helping students discover opportunities and thrive in this vibrant campus community.

Are you starting university in Spring or Fall term or in your first one or two years of study (at SFU)? The FASS Connections mentorship program connects newer students with senior FASS undergraduate students through social and academic activities. Participating in a mentorship program, either as a mentor or mentee, provides students with opportunities to get involved outside of the classroom and engage with their peers.
