New Student Advice: Get involved in a club or student group, it’s a great way to meet new people, and to find opportunities that can positively, contribute to your holistic development. Based on your program of study and the club you interact with, there are events and programs that may deal with topics or issues that you may learn about in the classroom, and it can provide you with a great opportunity to gain real world experience with that topic as well as possibly connect you to organisations and professionals in your field of study.
