Making the transition from high school to university is an exciting and often stressful transition. This summer the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and, Social Sciences (FAHSS) launched a pilot program called Transform First Year for incoming first year FAHSS students to ease the transition and give them a jump on their first semester.
Each of the 1,300 first-year FAHSS students received an email postcard encouraging them as they head into final exams.
Student mentors in FAHSS are reaching their peers online.
A First Year Transition Toolkit brings together resources for students entering the Faculty of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences.
The new UWin FAHSS app is available for free download on both the Apple App Store and Google Play.
The Reach peer e-advising portal gives first-year students a virtual connection to assistance from senior students.
Students in the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences now have access to online academic advising.
