I started volunteering even before I came to SFU, and recently, I volunteered as a Welcome Leader in Surrey. I love meeting incoming students and helping them with their needs. When we had a break to relax on Welcome Day, we discussed their goals and I helped answer their questions about SFU one-on-one.
I introduced them to aspects of student life at SFU Surrey like the secret study spots, and how homey the school can feel when you get to know it. I think this made them feel more comfortable to start asking questions. For me, I really appreciated the help that I got from my peers when I attended Welcome Day in my first year, so I wanted to pass on that experience to the next group of students.
