About this Event

Join Global Community @ SFU - Fall 2019 Cohort

Start your journey at SFU by building a supportive community around you. This program will give you the opportunity to learn about the culture of SFU and Canada while you meet new friends and explore your new home and what the community has to offer.

Go beyond the walls of campus and maximize your time at university by making meaningful connections from the start of your journey.

To see the full program details please visit our website.

Our Team:

The program is led by a group of dedicated student volunteers, known as Community Peers. Community Peers collaborate together to host events and meet ups for members registered with the Global Community @ SFU. Together, they host peer-to-peer group discussions with the members sharing tips from their time at SFU and celebrating diversity through intercultural socials.

You can request one to one mentorship and be matched with a Community Peer who will answer your questions one-on-one, and provide advice on all aspects of life at SFU.
