The PASS program provides a space for students to study collaboratively and ground their understanding of course material, supported by a peer who has taken this course recently and performed well. Through group discussions and collaborative activities/worksheets, the session leader supports students to achieve greater academic success. You get as much out of a PASS seminar as you put in: if you collaborate, answer questions, and work with others, you will learn a lot and probably make a few friends too!
This study session opportunity is available for the following courses: STAT 213, ACCT 217, MGST 217, FNCE 317, and BTMA 317.

There are several mentorship programs available at Haskayne. Having a mentor is a great way to be connected to campus life, advance in your academic and professional success, and make connections with the Haskayne community. This article will provide a summary of three programs you may be interested in!
The First-year Mentorship Program (FYM) helps first-year students make a successful and easy transition into their university career by pairing them with a senior Haskayne student. Having a mentor in the first few weeks of your time at the Haskayne School of Business will help you adjust to your surroundings and establish close relationships with your peers. You will be paired with a senior Haskayne mentor, who has similar interests as you (these matches are made manually). Your mentor group will include 1 mentor, and at least 2 other first-year students. This grouping will allow you to be connected with like-minded students. Having a mentor is a great way to be connected to campus life, advance in your academic and professional success, and make connections within the Haskayne community!
This is a pilot program, and the first of its kind to help you in your university transition. Spots are limited, and matches are based on a first-come-first-serve basis. If you are interested, please send an email to Shagufta Farheen, email@example.com, to be included in the waitlist!
Please note: the program will be taken place virtually to accommodate for students who are not in Calgary or who are taking courses online in Fall 2020
