One-on-One

Connect with your mentor

  • Starting in January 2018, you and a mentor will have one-on-one in-person meetings based on your schedule
  • You will receive on-going support (online, via text and in person) during your first term
  • Learn about SFU and its many hidden gems from a well trained, enthusiastic volunteer who has been at SFU for at least a year
  • Attend FASS Connections Mentorship program social and academic activities

"My mentor has become a person I feel I can rely on and look up to as a role model. She helped me work through some tough times and helped me learn to be a more independent person. Overall, I feel I learned many valuable life skills from her that will carry me far in university." (2016 mentee)

FASS FAMs (Transfer Students)

Connect with your transfer student peers 

  • All Spring 2018 FASS transfer (college and university) students  are automatically a part of FASS Transfer FAMS
  • You will join a laid-back community, led by fellow transfer students who’ve been at SFU a little longer, and meet fellow transfer students. 
  • Jump-start your co-curricular record – FAM participation will go on your Co Curricular Record
  • Learn about opportunities at SFU, such as Coop, Career Exploration, Getting Involved, and the resources on campus 
NOTE: We will register you into one of our cohorts based on your Spring class schedule. Raveena Randhawa (Engagement Programming Assistant - fassepa@sfu.ca) will be contacting those who sign up for Connections in early December to do so.
