Did your first exam or term not go quite as well as you had planned? That’s ok. It’s a common experience to struggle at university but you don’t have to do it alone! Our team of upper-year mentors is here to help you develop skills and share strategies to help get you back on track.
Bounce Back is a support program offered in the fall and winter terms for first-year undergraduate students who may be struggling academically. Students who opt in to the program are matched with an upper-year student mentor who works with them one-on-one to identify the source(s) of their difficulties, to share learning strategies, and to connect them with the appropriate on-campus resources.
Eligible students are contacted in the fall and winter term via email.
