University Avenue in the Fall

Q Success is a transition program to help first year students develop knowledge, attitudes, and skills to support their personal and academic success at Queen’s. Trained upper-year peers and professional staff run a series of interactive sessions for small groups of about 25 first-year students. Join a small group for 1.5-hour sessions in the first 9 weeks of Fall term and engage in self-directed activities in the last 3 weeks of the term.

The professional staff and student volunteers at Student Academic Success Services contribute to the QSuccess first year experience program by leading interactive and engaging workshops on topics such as

  • the differences between high school and university expectations
  • self-management skills
  • strategies to avoid common writing challenges
  • approaches to studying
