Orientation!

Orientation!

Student Life and QUSA have teamed up to bring you our first event of the academic year. All students, staff and faculty are invited to participate in a virtual Community Day event on Wednesday, August 26th at 5PM.

This event is an opportunity for us to build community (virtually); welcome new and returning students; and connect over shared interests.

At 5 PM, we will begin with an official welcome from our President, George Iwama. We will hear from our Interim Chief Academic Officer, Jeff Warren, and Dean of Student Life, Krista Lambie, with updates about remote learning and services. From 5:30-6:30 PM, you will be invited to join a breakout session of interest, led by a peer or member of staff and faculty.

To prepare you for your academic career at Quest, please join us on Thursday, August 27th at 10AM PST for your Academic Orientation. This will be your opportunity to learn more about Academic Mentors, the Foundation and Concentration programs, the Quest Honor Pledge and ask questions. The meeting link has been emailed to you by Steve Quane. If you did not receive it please reach out.

Ever wondered what being a Quest student is really like? Worried about taking online classes and wish you had the inside scoop? Join us on Friday, August 28th at 4PM PST for a Peer Mentorship Panel. You will get to know your peer mentors, learn more about Quest student life, and ask any questions you might have.

In order to help you succeed in your science courses throughout the Foundation Program and beyond, we want to ensure that you have all the necessary Quantitative Reasoning skills, before you get to class. That’s why we started the Q Skills program, a series of workshops and diagnostics which you will need to complete before you can register for science courses.

The start of the year will be busy, so we are offering remote sessions throughout August. If you would like to get a head start on Q Skills, please contact chris.stewart@questu.ca to arrange a meeting.

There are no language courses scheduled this Fall. We will reach out in the Spring to schedule the language diagnostic if needed. You can email your questions here.
