What is FYC?

The First Year Connections program helps first year students make a successful transition to university life by preparing them to achieve their personal and academic goals.

Having a mentor during your first few weeks at Carleton can help you get adjusted to your new surroundings. You will be paired with an upper year student who is in a similar academic program and has a similar schedule as you in order to match you with someone who will have the skills needed to help you along your way as you get acclimated to Carleton. Having a mentor is a great way to become connected to the campus, focus on your academic success and personal growth, gain support from your peers at Carleton, and make connections with other students.
