Q Success

A First Year Transition Program


  • A little nervous about your first year?
  • Wondering what to expect academically?
  • Interested in meeting new people as part of a small learning group?


Q Success may be for you.

Q Success is a transition program to help first year students develop knowledge, attitudes, and skills to support their personal and academic success at Queen's.

The program is delivered by trained upper year peer mentors and professional staff who run a series of interactive sessions throughout the fall term. Sessions are 90 minutes long (Program Calendar and Session Descriptions) and are held weekly in the fall term (2014 Schedule).

Students who opt-in to the program are placed into small cohorts (30-35 students) where they will learn how they can shape their first year experience at Queen's!

Why should YOU participate?

Q Success allows you to get key information during the term from peers and professionals in a small group setting. Participants will:

  • Identify and set goals for the term;
  • Learn how to think, learn and write for university;
  • Learn how to prepare and study for tests/exams;
  • Develop organizational and time-management skills;
  • Develop mental health helping skills;
  • Improve coping and self-management skills; and
  • Learn how to choose healthy lifestyles and take care of themselves!
