Through the program, I was able to make so many new friends at SFU! I enjoyed making social connections with peers and mentors and attending events such as the Granville Island night out. The virtual check-ins and events were helpful as it was cool to just come in, chill and chat with friends and community leaders during this time, because people may feel isolated themselves. Chatting on random topics helped in reducing my exam stress as well. I would definitely recommend this program to other SFU students.
