The Office of the Dean of Students Hosts First Year Experience Sessions

Helping students achieve their personal, professional and academic goals

The Office of the Dean of Students at Woodsworth College has reinvented its WOLF Workshop series and expanded it. WOLF was the academic portion of Orientation Week but is now a six week workshop series called the First Year Experience Sessions. Each session features a workshop that aims to help incoming first years and returning students learn new skills that will help them to exceed at the University of Toronto and beyond. The six sessions are designed to help students achieve their personal, professional and academic goals.      

Each session focuses on a different skill or set of resources essential to life at university. Each session is drop-in format with no RSVP required. The sessions allow students to access one-on-one support from upper year First Year Experience Mentors and from the Woodsworth College Student Life Staff. The sessions cover a variety of topics including tips on writing an A+ paper, budgeting, stress management, and how to get involved in campus groups and activities. Students who attend four out of the six sessions are eligible for Co-Curricular Record Notation.

The sessions are two hours in length and run every Friday in Waters Lounge. The last session is on October 13th. If you are interested in a workshop but are unable to attend, you can contact the Student Life Coordinator, Christina Alcena. She will then set up a time for a one-on-one appointment and will provide the workshop information.
