College Affiliation

Whether you live on campus or commute, your college is your community hub for socializing and accessing peer support. Our Colleges in the Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies organize academic services, such as peer mentoring, and keep you connected on campus through events like Orientation and Convocation. Colleges coordinate student get-togethers, post-class activities, workshops and trips. The college buildings are located conveniently on campus and have comfortable spaces where you can hold study groups, prepare for presentations or relax between classes.
