Great Tips from the RBC Arts Peer Mentors!
Try something new and branch out by taking a variety of courses in your first year. This will help you determine what you enjoy what you are good at - they usually coincide!
Try to get involved where possible and look for the many student opportunities UFV offers. Most of all just enjoy your UFV experience - it goes by quickly!
Consider working with a peer mentor. It can be beneficial to have someone to chat with who understands what it is like to be a student, and who knows their way around campus and its multitude of resources.
Spending all your time studying will suck the fun out of life! Spending no time studying will result in an unpleasant meeting with your program advisor! Balance is the key.
See an Advisor multiple times throughout your studies. Meeting with an advisor will help you realize the many options available to you at UFV and set up a path for at least the short-term.
Take time to visit your professors outside of class time during their office hours with your questions, concerns, or just to chat about the course/subject. They want you to suceed!
