The SMARTS Advantage
The new SMarts Advantage program has been created to provide a place for first year students to connect with and learn from senior students. New students will get the support necessary to have a successful and engaging first year, and gain new skills they can put to use for during the rest of their studies.
Through this program, first year students will have access to:
• Virtual course on BrightSpace where we share tips and tools and send reminders of important academic dates and events
• A mentor in Residence: a Leader available in the program room (MM214A) during drop-in time for students
• Scheduled workshops on issues relevant to anticipated first year challenges
• Study hall session (leaders provide study tips )
What are the benefits?
Building peer-to-peer relationships between senior and new students
Informing new students of valuable campus resources early in their degree
Providing reliable source of support and information for new students
The program, led by trained SMarts Leaders, is designed to engage new students in a variety of workshops that aim to increase academic performance and confidence. The SMarts Leader aims to provide guidance in the first year through individual meetings and targeted workshops and by connecting students with other resources on campus.
