A week-long series of events that focuses on the challenges associated with the transition to a university environment. This initiative will include specific sessions dedicated to each of FPA’s units, please see schedule below. All sessions will be led by upper-year FPA student Ambassadors in that particular FPA unit. The focus will be the first-year experience, strategies for a successful first term, and the balance between academics and university life within specific programs. Each session will conclude by highlighting the university supports available.
