Our FLC curriculum address three program areas: academic, developmental and social skills.
Academic: We understand that your main concern in your first-year of university is successfully meeting academic standards. In your FLC, Peer Mentors lead you through activities on note-taking skills, how-to prepare for midterms and final exams, developing professional relationships with your professors, learning about your program requirements, and how to apply for program specialties and POSts.
Developmental: You will be moving from the structured day of a high school student to greater independence as a first-year university student. Your Peer Mentors take you through programs to learn to effectively manage your time, promote personal health and wellness, make the most of group work, figure out ways to become involved in your university and greater Toronto communities as well as how-to apply for a summer job and capture your university experience on your resume.
Social: During your time at U of T, you will look to build a network of friends and colleagues. As a first-year student in a FLC, you will see your FLC group members regularly in your courses, labs and/or tutorials and at your FLC sessions. Your Peer Mentors will facilitate activities designed to help you foster relationships, explore the campus and city and have fun!
