The Smart Start Team is already preparing for the Summer 2014 program.
This past summer, over 4,000 incoming first year students and parents/guests participated in our unique transition program.
One student stated “Completely made me go from nervous to excited! Thanks! (Oakville).
A guest commented “My other child attends another university and I wish this program would have been available to him and us when he began his endeavours. All I can say is that Smart Start is an A+ program, keep up the good work and THANK YOU!! (Ajax)
