Peer Academic Leaders

Have a question about your studies or campus life? Need some tips on writing an essay or giving a presentation? Can't figure out how to join an on-campus gym? Connect with a high-achieving upper-year student to get reliable program-specific advice, support for your personal goals and other assistance throughout the year.

The Peer Academic Leaders' program aims to enhance your learning experience, foster your community engagement and help ensure your successful transition to university life. PALs provide essential information and help you access opportunities to engage with the college community. Their knowledge will help you develop the skills you need to achieve your personal goals and succeed in your degree.

Academic Workshops & Study Groups

Throughout the year, PALs also organize academic workshops, information sessions and study groups to help you at every phase of your studies.

Seeking a PAL?

Drop by the PAL office at Central PARC (102 Founders) – no appointment required – or email your question to fcmentor@yorku.ca (only Founders College office staff and our PAL Coordinator will see your question).
