Welcome from the Assistant Dean (Student Affairs):

Greetings everyone! Thank you so much for your visit. My name is Gina Robinson and it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Student Success Centre.

University is an exciting and challenging time.  This is a time when you will grow, learn life skills and get to know yourself.  You might have questions around academic skills, career planning, community engagement, study abroad opportunities, and how to take on a leadership position among others.   If that’s the case you have landed in the right place.   Take the time to explore the many programs and skill building opportunities we offer.

Maximizing your university experience goes beyond your academic degree.  Much of your learning will also occur outside of your classroom.  My advice to you is to use the resources that are available to you and to start your journey early because there may be some twists in the road ahead.

Please come and connect with us in GH 110.  We have a great team of professionals ready to guide you through your academic, personal and professional journey. If you can’t make it in, then visit our on-line resources like OSCARplus, InterviewStream, tutoring services, Career Cruising and our mentor database of industry leaders.

Wishing you much success and the best university experience ever!

Gina Robinson

Director of the Student Success Centre and Assistant Dean
