Summer Webinars

Pre-Arrival Webinar Series:  For Parents of New Students

“How to Support Your New McGill Student”

Are you wondering how you can support your child as they transition to McGill as new university students, both now and during their first year? Then join Leslie Copeland, McGill’s First-Year Coordinator, and learn what she has to share from her many years of working with first-year students. Some of the topics covered include: the role of parents/family, support resources at McGill, confidentiality, transition issues that may arise, health insurance, and the role of Campus Life & Engagement in supporting new students.

A recording of the webinar from July 24 can be found here
