My First Six Weeks
My First Six Weeks is your six-week “How-To U of T” guidebook, designed to help you smoothly transition to life as a U of T student.
The program features six weekly workshops facilitated by staff and upper-year students. These workshops will help you develop your academic skills, learn about helpful campus resources, explore exciting involvement opportunities and gain new insights about yourself.
Throughout the program, you will have a peer mentor to guide you, a Facebook group to connect through and fun activities where you can make some friends.
My First Six Weeks consists of six workshops, each with a different theme. Each workshop runs three times a week at the same time each week—this way you can pick the time that works best for you and connect with the same mentor and the same group of people for the duration of the program.
The only week that is a bit different is Week 1. The Week 1 welcome launch will take place during Orientation. If you cannot attend the Week 1 welcome launch, you are welcome to start when the weekly workshops begin in Week 2.
If you attend at least five weekly workshops, your participation in My First Six Weeks will be recorded on your Co-Curricular Record.
In addition to the weekly workshops, My First Six Weeks will keep you connected through an exclusive Facebook group and weekly outings so that you can spend some social time with your mentor and new friends.
My First Six Weeks is open to all new undergraduate students on the St. George campus. Please be sure to check your class schedule before registering for My First Six Weeks. Once you register for a specific time slot, you will be expected to attend a workshop every week at the time you have selected.
