First-in-Family (aka first-generation) students are those students whose parents have not attended post-secondary education. These students often have unique needs and face greater challenges dealing with the transition to university than those students who have had at least one parent make the transition before them.
The Student Experience Office is introducing a new program funded by the Ontario Ministry of Education aimed at providing additional support to First-in-Family students.
The First-in-Family Peer Mentor match new first-in-family students with returning first-in-family students. The returning students are available to answer questions, offer direction and support, share their experiences, and introduce new students to university life.
Activities will include one-on-one and group sessions with your mentor, social outings and informative workshops.
