KinOne First Year Experience Program

KinOne First Year Experience Program

Welcome to your first year at the Faculty of Human Kinetics and into the HK Family!

The KinOne First Year Experience program is designed to help you get comfortable on campus, connect with other students, and start to think of Kinesiology as a home away from home. The KinOne program helps first-year students transition to university by providing a instant network of peer support.

How does the KinOne Experience Program work?

All first-year students will be assigned to small groups led by KinOne leaders. Your KinOne Leader is an upper-year HK student who can show you the ropes by providing advice and support. You will meet your KinOne Leader, and your KinOne group, at the KinOne Kick-Off event during Windsor Welcome Week. After that, your KinOne leader will keep in touch with you on a regular basis throughout the year. This communication can be through email, phone, in class, or even grabbing a coffee on campus.

Your KinOne leader is there to ensure you're adapting to university life, performing well in classes, and having fun in the HK family!

What else does the KinOne Experience Program offer?

Along with regular communication with your KinOne leaders and groups, you will be able to participate in a series of workshops throughout the year. These workshops will cover such topics as time management, taking notes in class, how to read your course materials effectively, study tips, exam preparation, preparing for multiple-choice exams, writing skills, and more. The workshops are led by KinOne leaders and are specific to being an HK student.
