  • Check-In with Queen's welcome talk

    More than 200 first-year families gathered in Toronto to check in with Queen’s representatives about the transition to university life.

    The event is part of the Division of Student Affairs’ outreach to new Queens’ parents, who are partners in supporting their student's adjustment to the demands and challenges of post-secondary education.

    Vice-Provost and Dean of Student Affairs Ann Tierney talked to family members about common issues that some students may be experiencing as they get their first marks back, and as they settle in to their new living and social environment. She spoke about binge drinking and alcohol-related harms - a concern on many campuses - and encouraged families to connect with their students about strategies they can use to keep themselves and their friends safe. 

    The parents then split into groups to hear from faculty representatives.  Staff from several student services were also on hand to answer questions and advise how to best refer their children to campus supports if they need them.
     
    Queen’s has a parent website and dedicated email for parents, and offers parent sessions as part of Summer Orientation to Academics and Resources, and Residence Move-in Day.
