6:45 - 7:30 What I Wish I Had Known Starting University Student Panel We’ve rounded up a panel of experts (aka current students - the very people who have been there and done it before) to share their experiences and advice on how they navigated their first year of university, how to have a strong start at McGill, ideas for engagement opportunities, and tips for staying successful. Take advantage of this opportunity to hear these words of wisdom and pick up some insider tips. The panel will be moderated by Caitlin, the Undergraduate Orientation Programs Intern.

Light refreshments will be available.
