First-Year Coach

Become a First-Year Coach to new Laurentian students!


The Orientation and Transitions team in the Student Success Centre are seeking student volunteers to become First-Year Coaches for the incoming cohort of new Laurentian students. 

With the support of our Program Coordinators you’ll be coaching a small group of new students from your program or faculty to help them navigate the start of their post-secondary journey at Laurentian. This includes: supporting their questions via group chat, sharing your experience and resources, inviting them to Welcome Week activities! 

To participate in this program, please complete the application form below. We’ll reach out to you to confirm your application and provide a timeline as to when you can get started. We expect to match you with students
