Q Success may be for you.

Q Success is a transition program to help first year students develop knowledge, attitudes, and skills to support their personal and academic success at Queen's.

The program is delivered by training upper year peer mentors and professional staff who run a series of interactive sessions throughout the fall term.

Students who opt-in to the program are placed into small cohorts where they will learn how they can shape their first year experience at Queen's! Meetings are held weekly and usually run 1 1/2 hours each.
