The grass is greener where it’s watered
You may have noticed that we make a lot of garden analogies. This isn’t just because we have one of the most beautiful, park-like campuses in Canada. It’s also because we believe you need the right environment and the right support to reach new heights. To truly flourish, you need to be nurtured.
At MSVU, we’ll be here to support you at every step along the way. Below is an overview of some of the ways we’ll help you flourish in your new virtual university environment.
Get started now:
Personal Advising Program
Every single new and returning student will be assigned a Personal Advisor who will reach out to you over the summer, starting in July, to answer questions and make sure you have what you need to succeed.
Summer Session 2
New students can get a head start with MSVU’s online summer learning opportunities! Dive into interesting topics like the History of Rock and Roll, and Intro Astronomy, or upgrade your math, English and chemistry.
Mount 101 and Mount Mentors
Mount 101 is designed to make your transition to university as smooth as possible. The free Mount 101 online program, which will be available in mid-July, is your online survival guide. It covers everything from how to find your courses online to strategies that you can use to do well in online courses (and everything in between).
This year, we have a new Mount 101 module for you focusing on what the university will look like this fall. Called “Mount 101 for the virtual university,” this module will feature everything you need know about online learning, accessing supports from off campus and more.
The Mount Mentors are a group of senior students who know what it’s like to be a Mount student, because they are Mount students. They work with our new Personal Advisors to support you, answer your questions, and point you in the right direction.
We offer a number of scholarship and bursary supports for students.
Orientation begins in July with Mount 101 and the connections you’ll start building with others at MSVU. We’re also developing a virtual Orientation session that will take place on Tuesday, September 8 that will help you explore all that awaits as part of your MSVU experience – socially and academically. More details coming soon!
Social media accounts for new students
The New to MSVU 2020/2021 Facebook group and @NewToMSVU Instagram account are great places for incoming undergraduate students to ask questions, get helpful information, and start to build a community with your peers!
