One day a friend brought me to First Year Experience, an event that continues to shape my learning experience. There, I discovered an oasis; a reprieve from the outside world, where kind, compassionate caring people took the time to listen and assist in whatever way they can. Staff helped me complete OSAP forms and apply for bursaries. On occasion, they've helped me with math. So come to First Year Experience and witness genuine benevolence in action.
