Get a Smart Start This Fall

Smart Start is a free, three-week event running from September 12th-30th, dedicated to providing you with the strategies and resources you need to be a successful student. Register for some of our 30+ workshops on topics such as effective study strategies, how to write university essays, note taking, research skills, and more.


While our focus is on ensuring that new undergraduate and graduate students can improve their academic performance, upper-year undergraduate or continuing graduate students may also find it useful to polish their skills.

Workshops will be offered in the following categories:

  • Study Skills
  • Writing Help
  • Technology Skills
  • Graduate Student Help
  • Undergraduate Research
  • Library Skills
