Fall Term – Connection

Once you're here at SFU, you'll find there are continuing activities and events that will support you both in your academic and non-academic life.

Global Connections Program

Kick-start your first year by becoming a member of the Global Connections Program in which you can:

  • make valuable social connections;
  • receive 1:1 peer support in your transition to SFU; and
  • explore the diverse culture of SFU.

This program will give you the opportunity to learn about SFU and our diversity while you meet new friends and explore different cultures. There will be various online events over the course of one term and you can choose to attend as many as you want. This program is open to all degree-seeking undergraduate students in their first year at SFU.

SFU 101

Set yourself up for academic success in your first year at university by completing this free online course. SFU 101 continues on from University Prep by including information about welcome events and programs, campus culture and student life, tips for academic success, and opportunities for you to connect with your faculty and the SFU community.

There are two parts to SFU 101. Part 1 will launch in early August so stay tuned!

The HIVE Program

HIVE is your Home for Interactive Virtual Engagement, where you and a small group of fellow new students are connected in a fun and engaging way to build a virtual community. HIVE sets you up to be successful in your first term and first year at SFU. You’ll be placed in a group based on taking some of the same courses, living in the same time zone or having similar social interests.
