Position Yourself for Success

We believe that learning is not limited to opening a book or listening to a lecture. We learn from every moment, situation and personal encounter. The more you are exposed to new situations and people, the more you grow.

But don't just take our word for it! Studies have shown that students living in residence have a better chance of succeeding academically, have more social interaction with peers and faculty members, and are more likely to be involved in extracurricular activities.

Connect with your Academic and Leadership Programmer (ALP)

These student staff members help give you an academic advantage! They connect students in residence to resources on campus and provide opportunities to help first year students be successful in their academics and involvement.

ALPs help you get an academic edge by:

  • Programs to help you make connections with professors
  • Organized study groups for students in common courses
  • Review sessions to help you prepare for exams
  • Study rooms for academic support in a relaxed atmosphere
  • Presentations to improve your study and exam-writing skills
  • Opportunities to participate in fun programs such as study relays and breakfast clubs
  • The Residence Leadership Conference
  • Academic updates, resources, and much more!

The academic and leadership programmers work together with the Office of Residence Education and Programs, the Student Success Centre, Learning Skills Services and various other offices on campus to create the optimum environment where residents can reach their potential and be academically successful.
