Peer Mentorship

This programme aims to connect more experienced U of T students with their recently arrived colleagues. There will be several informal meetings and an exchange of contact information so that there can be a person to guide and give support as well as a chance to make new connections. There will be free snacks and/or lunches for all participants at the CLASSU-organized meet-ups. We will try and pair you with someone of similar interests. The programme will be relaunched in Fall 2018!
