Let’s Check In…

The mid-point is always a challenging time in the academic semester. With the current added complexity of the pandemic, it’s easy to feel disconnected from your support system.

Your Schulich team is here for you! Please note that advising will continue throughout Reading Week – reach out or drop in via Zoom, with any questions or concerns about your academic success. 

Check out COVID-19 Wellbeing Resources to help support your physical, mental and emotional health.
