Participating in a study group can help you to develop specific learning goals and objectives, engage in discussions, think through problems, and keep you motivated and on task.
There are many organized study groups that you can be a part of, and they count towards your co-curricular credit record too!
Recognized Study Groups
Recognized Study Groups (RSGs) are small groups of three to six students that meet weekly for one to three hours and are facilitated by a RSG Leader. The goal of RSGs is to collaborate on learning course content in a supportive environment. Collaborative learning is an effective strategy that supports academic and social engagement in large first and second year classes.
First-Year Learning Communities
First-Year Learning Communities (FLC) is a group of 25-30 students in the same area of study, who will be enrolled in some of the same core first-year courses and will meet regularly outside of class time for useful and fun activities during their FLC sessions. The sessions are facilitated by an upper year Peer Mentor and an Assistant Peer Mentor with the support of staff and/or faculty advisors.
The content of FLC sessions will address three broad transition areas: academic, developmental, and social. Some of the topics that may be covered in FLC meetings include: study strategies, campus traditions and history, mastering tests and exams, choosing a program of study, and career explorations. There will also be recreational, social activities, and much more!
Student Life highlights a number of groups including: recognized campus groups; student societies; affiliates of student societies; course unions; Hart House groups; and athletic groups.
First Year Foundations (“Ones” Programs)
Ones Programs are interactive small-group courses that allow you to network with peers and professors and explore a range of compelling issues while earning credit.
