WELCOME ALL NEW (& RETURNING) STUDENTS!
The Aboriginal Student Centre is here to provide services designed to support your academic endeavors by building on your strengths. Because it is not always easy being here, the mandate of the Aboriginal Student Centre consists of promoting pride in who we are and where we come from. Attending University does not have to come at the expense of losing our languages, cultures, or traditions.
It is important to remember why you are here and to remain focused on your goals so you don't let obstacles get in your way. There is a lot of support available, including Elders, counselors, friends & family. Use the supports if you need them and offer your support to others when it is requested. This is part of our philosophy-together none of us need to feel alone.
