The Faculty of Arts and Science is located on the First Floor of Dunning Hall. Students come to the office for academic counselling and answers to academic-related questions: about degree programs, requirements for dual degrees, letters of permission to take courses at other universities, appeals, etc.

However, current and prospective students can't always make it to the office and need to email us for answers to their questions.

We'd like to make it easier for you to get the answers you need by offering different emails for different questions.

PASS Coordinators

Celine Tsai

Hi everyone! My name is Celine and I am a third-year majoring in Life Sciences. This is my second year being involved in PASS and I am lucky enough to be one of the coordinators of this program for this year. Although this year came with its own new set of challenges, I am here to support you and navigate any of your questions or concerns. Above all, I am beyond excited to meet you all and welcome you to the Queen’s community! Besides PASS, I am also a lab member of the Colpitts lab doing research in microbiology and a Crisis Responder for Kids Help Phone. My hobbies include reading, writing poetry, and playing volleyball. First year can be both exciting and nerve-wracking, but PASS is here to guide you and help make your transition from high school to university as smooth as possible, so definitely reach out- we’re just one message/email away.

Andra Efosa

Hey Everyone! My name is Andra Efosa and I am one of the new PASS coordinator for the 2020-2021 school year. I am pursuing a degree in Sociology here at Queen’s!  This year I am currently enrolled in QUIP (Queen’s University Internship Program) and I am delighted to be working with the Faculty of Arts and Science Student Services! This is my first year working at PASS but I am very familiar with it because I used the service multiple times during my first year. First year can be so stressful: living in a new city, getting use to a new institution, understanding what is expected of you etc. But just know that we are here to help you, especially in these unprecedented times. I hope you reach out to us when you need help and we will do our best to solve any issues you may have!

PASS Advisors

Riley Geisler

Hi everyone! My name is Riley and I’m a second-year student specializing in Life Sciences, with the hope of pursuing a career in neurological medicine. I’m very excited to be a part of PASS this year, and look forward to helping out as best I can. I can be found in the ARC or sometimes BioSci, but I normally do my studying at home. Aside from PASS, I am a co-president of CARRM@Queen’s, a Gael for O-Week, and am training for my first powerlifting. I was lucky enough to hear about PASS and utilize the resources available, which made my transition into first year seamless. Feel free to reach out to PASS anytime and myself or one of our many other amazing advisors will help you out, Cha Gheill!

Sarah Bahreinian

Hi everyone, I’m Sarah! I’m a third-year Education and Life Sciences student here at Queen’s. 

This is my second year as a PASS advisor and I couldn’t be more excited! I became a PASS advisor last year with hopes that I could share some of the lessons I’ve learned along the way from my university experience to incoming students. 

Besides PASS, this year I am also a Residence Don, a co-chair for QSACK (the Queen's chapter of the Sexual Assault Centre Kingston), a Podcast Coordinator for Scientista (a club that works to empower women in STEMM), and a Research Assistant for the Cognition in Psychological Disorders Lab. 

Last year, PASS was my favorite extracurricular activity. My two-hour PASS shifts were always the highlight of my week and I really cherished the connections I got to build with students. I’m grateful for the students who trusted me, who opened up, and who were vulnerable – because I know it’s not always easy. Please feel free to come by and chat about anything on your mind, no matter how big or small. Whatever it is you’re experiencing, you don’t have to go through it alone, and we can work through it together. I look forward to helping you navigate your way through first-year to make the best of this exciting experience! See you soon!

Emma Lanciault

Hey QU Peeps!

My name is Emma and I am entering the fourth year of my specialization in Environmental Toxicology. This past year I also completed my certificate in law. This will be my first year as a PASS advisor, and I am thrilled to be able to meet more members of the Queen’s community and help the out the Class of ’24! When I’m not in class, note taking for fellow classmates, or working at the Starbucks in Mitchell hall you can find me outside or at a local Kingston restaurant! Please do not hesitate to stop by Dunning if you have any questions or just want to hangout.  I can’t wait to meet you all!

Yonie Ye

Hey everyone! My name is Yonie and I'm going into my third year in the AST Nursing program here at Queen's. Prior to this, I was studying life sciences along with a certificate in business. This is actually my third year with the PASS team and I must say that I am beyond excited to be working with this team again and meeting some of you! We know that transitioning from high school to university is a big jump, but don't worry, we're here to help! 

Katie Faulkner

Hi everyone! My name is Katie and I will be finishing up my final year at Queen’s studying Bio-Psychology. Aside from PASS, you can usually find me volunteering in a few of the labs we have on campus, studying with snacks in Douglas library, helping around the Kingston community, or playing intramural soccer. This year may feel a little different, but PASS will be here for you the same way that we always have been! We understand how stressful the transition into university can be, so please do not hesitate to reach out.  We are more than happy to answer any questions and we are so excited to welcome you into the Queen’s community!

Jacqui Higgins

Hey everyone! My name is Jacqui and I am 3rd year Chemistry major combined with a certificate in business. This is my second year being a PASS advisor and I could not be more excited. I am originally from Ottawa, but I am happy to call Kingston home. I can usually be found in Chernoff with a latte, studying or helping the Chemistry DSC. If there is any way I can help with your transition to Queens do not hesitate to reach out to PASS!

Phoebe Gao

Hi everyone :) My name is Phoebe and I’m in my 3rd year of majoring in Life Science and minoring in Statistics! I know for me, figuring out what to major in and picking courses was a struggle in my first (and even second) year, so I am very excited to be there for you to help ease that transition and show you all that Queen’s has to offer! Outside PASS, I’m involved in TEDxQueensU, Operation Smiles, SCINAPSE, AMS as Alumni Relationship Manager, Queen’s for the street, PLA and QSuccess! Usually you can find me at Stauffer, Botterall, or at the ARC, usually in Cogro or playing intramural volleyball! Personally, I found balancing all aspects of my life very hard coming into university, so if I could go back in time, I would tell myself to reach out for help and go see a PASS advisors, after all, who best to help than people who have had the same experiences as you? All that to say, I’m so excited to meet you, help you thrive at your own university journey, and to help you avoid/ease the struggles that come with the university transition.

Sarah Mullen

Hi everyone! My name is Sarah, and this is my second year as a PASS advisor. I am currently a third-year student majoring in Health Studies with a minor in Environmental Studies. I am originally from Kingston, and I am glad to say I chose to stay in Kingston to attend Queen’s. Outside of PASS, I volunteer with Student Academic Success Services (SASS) as a Peer Learning Advisor, and am looking forward to participating in more volunteer opportunities in the Kingston community this upcoming year!

Outside of Queen’s, I can also be seen working as a barista, running, playing sports, or doing something on or near the water. My interests are diverse, from my interest in healthcare to my interests in oceanography, film/media analysis, houseplant care, architectural design, and sustainability.

First year is tough, in more ways than one - there’s no doubt about it. Navigating first year, I felt very overwhelmed with choice, and didn’t have a clue what I wanted to study. PASS is an incredible resource that I was definitely glad I used in first year that opened up a lot of options, and it felt great just to talk to a peer about the things I was experiencing. Please come by with any and all questions, we are here to help make first year a smooth and enjoyable transition!

Isabella Alonso

Hi everyone! My name is Isabella and I am heading into my fourth year at Queen’s majoring in Health Studies with a minor in Psychology. This is my first year as a PASS advisor and I am really excited to start! Aside from PASS, I’m going to be spending my time applying to occupational therapy post-graduate programs and I will also be working as a directed lab student in the Autism Spectrum Disorder lab. As well, I am extremely passionate about mental health advocacy and in the past two years, I have been a member and co-chair of the Mental Health Awareness Committee (MHAC). This year has been a whirlwind of changes and uncertainty, especially for incoming first year students. As a PASS advisor, I hope to not only help with academic concerns, but to also emphasize the importance of maintaining mental health during this transition. I’m looking forward to meeting all of you!

Hazuk Asghar

Hi! My name is Hazuk Asghar, and I am a third-year undergraduate student here at Queen’s University. I am majoring in economics and political science, with interests in macroeconomic policy, international relations, and international political economy. This is my first year as a PASS advisor, and I am looking forward to joining the team and helping my fellow undergraduate classmates. When I am not studying for exams and midterms or writing research papers during the semester, you can find me listening to music, spending time with my family, or enjoying an Iced Capp from Tim Horton’s. Overall, I would describe myself as someone who is focused, organized, and helpful whenever possible, and I am really looking forward to working as a PASS advisor!

Lauren Anderson

Hi everyone, my name is Lauren! I'm in my third year of Biology here at Queens. I joined PASS because I had a difficult time navigating SOLUS and choosing the right courses for my first year. I'm excited to pay it forward! Asides from PASS, I've volunteered with the Society for Conservation Biology and Queens Kaleidoscope. I also love playing soccer. Don't stress about the transition to university - here at PASS someone is always ready to help! 

CeCe Li

Aside from PASS, you can find me behind the residence front desks, coding in the Adolescent Dynamics Lab, and being a TA for PSYC 100. I know first year can be both an exciting and challenging transition, especially as we navigate these new learning environments. Whether you have general questions about first year, accommodations, courses and plan selection, or campus resources, we are always happy to help so please don't hesitate to reach out! I look forward to meeting you all!

Kate Hunker

Hi Everyone! My name is Kate and I am a third-year student majoring in psychology and minoring in health studies. When I’m not in Kingston, I reside in Ottawa, Ontario, however I grew up in Saskatchewan and often still think of the province as my home. I am incredibly excited to by a PASS Advisor this year, but aside from PASS I can usually be found working with the Peer Health Educators at Student Wellness Services or ordering a big slice of red velvet cake at CoGro. I can’t wait to meet all of you and help you through your first-year transition into the Queen’s community.

Jacob Graham

Hey everyone! My name is Jacob and I am going into my third year of a life sciences major here at Queen’s. I was born in Calgary and have lived there my whole life. I have two dogs that I miss very much when I am away, but despite that I am very excited to be going back to school next semester. I enjoy skiing in the winter, and various water sports in the summer as well as hanging out with my friends and family. I was a PASS advisor last year and thoroughly enjoyed the experience and skills I picked up along the away. I am looking forward to helping first years navigate their academic transition into university, which can sometimes be an overwhelming process.

Julia McDonell 

Hi Everyone! My name is Julia and I am a fourth-year student, majoring in Classical Studies and minoring in English. Last year I completed a QUIP Internship with the Faculty of Arts and Science, and became a part of PASS, and I am so excited to be coming back for a second year of advising! Apart from PASS, I volunteer with Read for Fun, the Kingston Library, and work as a tour guide, and an usher for the Isabel Bader Center. I can’t wait to meet you all (online or in person) and answer any questions you might have!

Emma Graves

Hey everyone! My name is Emma and I am a fourth year in the Biopsychology specialization. This will be my second year as a PASS advisor and I am so excited to meet you! Aside from PASS, I am also involved with QSuccess. In my spare time, I enjoy running, spending time outdoors and with friends. I know that first year can be very overwhelming with so many new experiences happening, so please feel free to reach out to us. We are excited to meet you!

Kathleen Murphy

My name's Kathleen Murphy and I'm a 20-year-old life sci student going into my fourth year here at Queens. I'm not entirely sure what career I want to pursue, but I know I want to go into healthcare because I'm passionate about helping people. I decided to apply to be a PASS advisor because when I was in first year, I knew nothing about what courses to take for specific grad programs or even what prerequisites were required for the courses that I wanted to take. Now that I've figured that out (mostly!) I'm super excited to help out other students that are going through the same thing that I was. Can't wait for next year!

Jingyu Xu

Hi everyone! My name is Jingyu Xu, and I’m going into my third year of majoring in Statistic, and minoring in Economic! This is my first year as a PASS advisor and I am really excited to work in here and meet new people! I know that first year is stressful, most of you may have problems about choosing courses, plan selection, etc. However, don’t worry! PASS is here to help you with your transition, so please don't hesitate to reach out!. I’m looking forward to meeting all of you!
