EXPERIENCE October 2016 Newsletter MIX AND MINGLE The RETROfied Mix and Mingle this year was one of the best events that has happened so far within Humber. It was a perfect way to welcome all students to an event where they were able to have fun, enjoy food, & drinks, and participate in fun activities! As a Senior Peer Mentor, working at the registration desk for this event, I noticed many students that really just wanted to get involved and have fun! This is exactly what FYE is all about, FUN! It creates an atmosphere where everyone is welcome to have fun and enjoy their college experience! The Mix and Mingle was an awesome experience and we can’t wait until the next FYE event!

Free food, drinks, prizes, and much more! FYE will be holding two more movies nights this semester. YES, that is two more chances to come out and have a good time with us.

EXPERIENCE October 2016 Newsletter Arboretum Adventures

Take a nature stroll at the Humber Arboretum! FYE explored the Humber Arboretum on October 5th 2016. The luscious green scenery combined with the refreshing gusts of wind created an atmosphere unlike any other. Fun activities , learning about nature and enjoying the warm breeze made for a wonderful event!

Your First Six Weeks ‘Your First Six Weeks’ (YFSW) was a series of workshops that helped students transition into Humber/Guelph-Humber by becoming aware of the services provided. It is set up to help students make new friends, gain knowledge, get delicious refreshments, as well as enter into draws to win awesome prizes. YFSW is a way to help students get involved quicker and easier. These workshops are offered every year for the first six weeks of school! Thank you to all who participated in the workshops!

Another round of YFSW begins in the Winter semester, so stay tuned!


EXPERIENCE October 2016 Newsletter

Take Back the Night Humber and Guelph-Humber students marched across campus to raise awareness about sexual violence. Over 50 students marched through the night and with every footstep lies an appeal to promote dialogue about sexual injustice.

Meet your Dean & Faculty In the first 2 weeks of October, ‘Meet Your Dean & Faculty’ nights featured associate deans, faculty and program coordinators that answered students’ questions. It was an amazing opportunity to gain insight and knowledge straight from the source! These events will run again next Fall semester.


EXPERIENCE October 2016 Newsletter Peer Mentor Spotlight As a Health Science Peer Mentor, I help students get the best out of their first year of post secondary by helping them transition. I hear their stories, their successes, their concerns and answer their questions. I highly encourage college involvement and FYE socials are a perfect place to start! - Alexandra Dereviankina, PM

I'm glad I took on a chance to try something new. I learn more about myself, my abilities, my peers and the school everyday. Most importantly, my senior peer mentors & mentees simultaneously inspire to be a better leader and student. FYE is definitely a program I would encourage all students to experience.
