How FYE has helped past students.

It’s (FYE) helped me by informing me about everything I need to know to successfully start my first year. I’ve received answers to my questions and learnt about important resources, dates, and events. I feel prepared (and excited!) to start my first year.

FYE is an amazing resource for help. I’ve attended other institutions where it was hard to get support Guelph Humber goes above beyond. I feel connected to the University. Having peer advisors and an academic advisor has made my transition to university very easy.

(FYE has) Connected me to people in my program and making me feel like a part of the community.

FYE has helped me, all the info being posted onto the stream gives me the info I wouldn't have otherwise found. I also feel like when I have a Program specific question, I can't find online I have someone who is able to answer it. The FYE program helps ease my nerves going into my first year.
