What's Happening Now Around Innis

Join the Innis InSIGHT Mentorship Program!

Do you want to:

Make an automatic connection with an upper-year from your program? Learn from students who’ve taken the course you are in and ones you are interest in? Make new friends and network in your stream and beyond?

 

Find all of this and more with Innis InSIGHT—the mentorship program at Innis College, which aims to help first-year students make a smooth transition into university life.

 

We group first-year students with upper-year students of the same academic program, who support and share their “insights” into university experiences—academic and otherwise. We also organize tonnes of fun social events throughout the year to introduce you to mentees and mentors from your own and other streams.

 

All first-year Innis College students are welcome to apply—including Rotman Commerce, engineering, Innis residents, Chestnut residents, and commuters

Deadline extended to Wed, Sept 26, 2018 at 11:59 pm.
