Student Leadership & Engagement
Where do I drop off a student participating in both Smart Start and LEAP?
Please arrive on campus no later than 7:30am on the day Smart Start begins. Follow the signs for Smart Start and bring any luggage for LEAP with you in the morning to LEAP/Smart Start registration. (For example, if you are attending LEAP on July 10 then please arrive on campus at 7:30am on July 9th)
Where do I drop off a student participating in LEAP only?
Please arrive on campus no later than 3:30pm. Follow the signs for LEAP to the front of the Schmon Tower. You will be greeted by a LEAP Staff member.
Pick up locations and emergency contact information will be provided to you at check in.
Looking for ways you can spend the day while your student is participating in LEAP?
Niagara Falls, one of the 7 Wonders of the World, is less than half an hour away from the university campus. In addition to the falls, the many nearby attractions available to you discover while in the region include casinos, museums, midway rides, and performances. The city of St. Catharines has a number of attractions for you as well. Spend an afternoon exploring the historic Downtown Mercantile District and stop for something to eat at one of the 65 restaurants offering a variety of casual, ethnic, and cultural selections. There is always something entertaining happening at Montebello Park, in the core of St. Catharines.
