Six Podcasts to Help You Grow

Girl putting headphones on.

Podcasts have really blown up recently. At least, it seems that way to me. I was first introduced to podcasts in high school; they sounded interesting, but I wasn’t interested enough to look into them. I listened to the radio and to my iPod, I read books, I watched TV… what was the point of podcasts anyway? However, a couple months ago, so many of my favourite public figures started podcasts that I decided to give them a try, and now I love them.

From struggling to Success Coaching

A peer success coach meets with a student

Peer Success Coaching is an academic development service run by the SSO to connect experienced upper-year students to individual students who are looking for strategies to improve their academic skills and reach their personal goals. These success coaches can offer strategies and resources to you and what’s more, works together with you in a collaborative learning process to personalize a plan to best suit your needs.

We interviewed Nina and Emily about their academic experiences and what it’s like to be a Peer Success Coach, and they shared their perspectives on the challenges that students face.
