A message from the Associate Dean, Academic and Student Success 

Hello and welcome to the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (FAHSS)! My name is Dr. Danielle Soulliere and I am the Associate Dean, Academic and Student Success. Here in FAHSS, you will have many opportunities to explore your interests in the arts, humanities and social sciences while gaining skills and experiences that will enhance your future potential. As a first-year student, here are three tips that I would like to provide you.

  1. Have an open mind. 
  2. Interact with your professors and classmates. 
  3. Have fun! 

If you're a second, third or fourth year student, then try to get involved on campus! Join a club, participate in the Volunteer Internship Program, or even take part of Mentorship and Learning. The possibilities are endless. If you're in need of assistance, then my office door is always open to welcome you. Have yourself a FAHSSome year!
