Educational support services help student adjust to Canadian university life

As a student new to Canada, Syeda Fariha found it difficult to adjust to the differing expectations of her professors. She transferred to Windsor in fall 2011 after two years studying economics in her native Bangladesh.

“In the beginning, I had no friends and I was struggling with my studies,” she recalls. “I was frustrated and disappointed.”

However, Connecting4Success and other programs of the Educational Development Centre have helped her gain confidence.
