Hello there friends! Hope you’re all ready for another wonderful entry of “Getting to Know Sheridan… Services”.
Now today’s topic won’t be much like the other services mentioned in previous posts, but I thought it would be a great idea to talk more about what we First Year Connections Peer Mentors are all about!
The 2015/2016 FYC team consists of both new and returning Peers from a wide range of programs. From Game Design to Paralegal, we are quite a diverse crowd of people, all with our own unique and individual skillset. However, with this great mix of personalities, skills and traits, we have one common goal that each of us had joining the FYC team – to help you!
We here at First Year Connections strive to ensure the success of first year students during their time here at Sheridan College. We understand how difficult it can be coming into a new setting so we want to make it as easy and comfortable as possible. We accomplish our goals by running fun events to help you relax, or workshops that help you develop your skills. Not only that, but we are also available to you at any time to help with any questions or concerns that you may have, or even refer you to services we think you may benefit greatly from.
We encourage you to keep an eye on your Access Sheridan emails to stay informed about our latest events, newsletters and, of course, if you want to get a hold of your Peer Mentor! If you are unsure as to how to reach your Access Sheridan email, just head on over to https://access.sheridaninstitute.ca > Sign in with your username and password > click on “Microsoft Office 365” under “Sheridan Resources” > and sign in once more to view your inbox!
Now before I let you go about your merry day, Sheridan College is now recruiting Peer Mentors for the 2016/2017 academic year. Positions are offered in many areas including First Year Connections.
