As you continue to prepare for your future, it’s important to enhance your self-awareness and develop skills that will help you navigate your choices. This program can assist you in developing those skills and in making connections with alumni mentors, other upper-year students, and subject matter experts.

The “Get Ready for: Life After Graduation” program will have two main elements:

  1. Alumni in Residence – mentors who share their experiences with you and help guide your growth and development.
  2. A workshop series where you learn life skills from subject matter experts. Past workshops have included Networking, Cooking, and Money Matters (how to manage your money).

The program is currently running each term for upper-year residents in UW Place Waterloo Court.
