Get an advantage with Summer Welcome on May 6

May 4, 2021 — 

Are you starting your UM experience this summer term? We want to help ensure that you start on your academic path with the tools you need to be successful. That’s why, for the first time, the UM First Year Centre is introducing Summer Welcome — a day of online programming to welcome you to the University of Manitoba and help prepare you for your first year.

“This is the first year we have offered specialized programming for students starting their academic career in the summer term,” says Brandy Usick, Executive Director, Student Engagement and Success.

“We are happy to provide welcome and transition programming at each of the three starts: fall, winter and summer. We want to offer an outstanding student experience, and that includes equipping students with what they need to be successful.”

Taking place this Thursday, May 6, Summer Welcome provides a number of activities planned to provide you with all the info you need to begin your university studies. This includes:

  • Connecting you with advisors and other students as they share tips and tricks for starting classes remotely;
  • Helping develop your academic writing, time management, and study skills;
  • Introduce you to UM resources where you can find help and support;
  • Help you explore all that UM has to offer, both inside and outside the classroom.

Sessions run from 9 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. on May 6. To register and get access to Zoom links, visit the Summer Welcome page. We hope to see you Thursday!
