Blueprint Returns on September 9
The Blueprint Program is an easy way to get involved in life outside the classroom. Through a series of engaging workshops you will learn and develop skills that will serve as the foundation on which you will build your experience. All you need is a Blueprint and a desire to get involved!
By registering for the program, you will receive our Ultra-Helpful Weekly Email to keep you in-the-know about upcoming workshops. It’s up to you to choose which workshops fit your interest and your schedule. Finally, once you have successfully completed the program, you will also receive a certificate of completion to include on your resume and in your portfolio.
- STEP 1: Grab yourself a Blueprint tracking card. They are available during Orientation events at the beginning of the year and throughout the year in the Office of Student Life, located on the main floor of the Koffler Student Services Centre (214 College Street).
- STEP 2: Register for the program and take a look around this website to learn more about upcoming workshops and activities to participate in.
- STEP 3: Once registered, you will start receiving the Ultra-Helpful Weekly Email, filled with information about upcoming workshops and activity ideas that will help you complete your Blueprint requirements.
- STEP 4: Record your progress on your Blueprint as you attend the workshops and participate in the experiential learning opportunities.
STEP 5: When you have completed your Blueprint tracking card, write a short reflection (about a page or so) about what you learned from participating in the three activities you chose, and send an e-mail to email@example.com to schedule a Blueprint Review with a Student Life staff member.
