To help you transition into Canada and to the big beautiful city of Toronto, the GBC, representing all Masters level students at Schulich, has developed the three exciting programs.
Learn more below. We encourage you to take advantage of these initiatives:
1. The GBC Buddy Program
Register here and the GBC will pair you with a buddy based on your interests and preferences. A Buddy is a current student at Schulich who has been in your shoes not long ago. He/she will be your friend as you move to Canada and get settled in your new home. Buddies are a great resource to ask questions about the community, student life, groceries, transit, currency, healthcare services and more! Feel free to reach out to your buddies and ask them any questions that are weighing on you. If you have any trouble connecting with your buddy, email Nomi Jain at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2. Chat with the GBC
Beginning this year, the GBC will host weekly chats where up to ten incoming students can register each week to speak to the GBC leadership team and learn about clubs, success tips, and student life in general. Sessions are starting over the Winter Break, so you have an opportunity to connect with the GBC prior to your arrival at Schulich in January.
Please register at http://gbcschulich.com/incoming-students-chat-gbc/ based on your availability. The date of the session will be 23rd or 26th of December at 12.30 AM EDT.
3. Take a Tour
The GBC wants to be there for you when you finally arrive in Canada. Volunteer students from the current class will take their incoming international schoolmates on a guided tour around the campus and to nearby stores. Trips are also planned for downtown Toronto in groups of 3-5 on specific dates.
Questions? Concerns? Please reach out to the GBC International Affairs Director Nomi Jain at email@example.com.
