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.

Julia Baldassarra (PASS Coordinator & Student Services Intern)

Hello everyone! My name is Julia Baldassarra and I am one of the PASS Coordinators for this year. This is my first year with PASS and I am so excited to see what this year holds for the program. I am a Political Studies major and taking an Employment Relations certificate. This year I am doing a 16-month internship with the Faculty of Arts and Science through the Queen’s University Internship Program (QUIP). Besides PASS I am also one of the Co-Chairs for Queen’s Feminist Leadership in Politics (QFLIP) and a member of the executive team at Queen’s Save the Mothers. Outside of school, I enjoy reading, hanging out with friends and watching TV. I know your first year can be overwhelming but at PASS we can help make that transition a bit easier. We are always happy to help so don’t hesitate to reach out!

Sangeetha Saravanan (Assistant Coordinator)

Hello everyone! My name is Sangeetha Saravanan, and this is my second year on the PASS team, and my first year as the PASS Assistant Coordinator. I’m in my fourth year in Life Science, and I'm also pursuing a second degree in Indigenous Studies, as well as the DIPA certificate! I'm from Markham, Ontario, and I also love to read! Outside of PASS, I’m involved as one of the EDII directors for VCFS, and I am one of the captains of the QISA Dance Team, and a Resume Coach for Career Services at Queen’s. First year is definitely a time filled with a lot of excitement - but it can also be filled with some nervousness, but reaching out can help ease the transition from high school to university. PASS can help address academic concerns, as well as help with handling stress, and provide resources for mental health support, so always feel free to come talk with someone in PASS! We’re looking forward to meeting you all! 

Luca DiFrancesco

Hi everyone, my name is Luca and this is my first year as a PASS Advisor! I’m a third year Life Sciences Major and Concurrent Education student with the hopes of being a high school Biology and Chemistry teacher after graduation. Outside of PASS, I am starting my two-year term on the Board of Directors for the Alma Mater Society where I Chair the Personnel Committee. This year, I am also sitting on the Senate Committee on Academic Development and Procedures where I get to work with an awesome team of people who try to enhance the learning experience for all the students here at Queen’s! I know how tough the transition is from high school to university, especially now as we transition through this post-COVID world. Don’t be afraid to reach out because we are all here to help you adjust to life at Queen’s!

Zichen Song 

Hello everyone! My name is Zichen Song, and I am a student majoring in life science. I am spending one extra year at Queen’s to get more hands-on experiences and enjoy an academic year with fewer COVID restrictions. As a life science student, I am enthusiastic about genetics and neuroscience. I am currently participating in a research project about the SLMAP gene. In my spare time, I am interested in sailing, photography, fashion design, and video games (Yakuza Series). You can find me walking on the campus while acquiring inspiration to create my lookbook, volunteering in one of the life science labs, or enjoying Hokkaido Hotate (scallop sashimi) at Sima Sushi. This is my first year as a PASS advisor. As an international student, I know that the first year can be challenging. Many of you want to balance schoolwork and social life effectively. Many of you need to work hard to get used to the university curriculum. I had a similar situation. You are not alone! I found effective ways to overcome the language barrier, create logical course selection strategies, make new friends and achieve academic success during my first year. I am willing to share my story and experience with you! I am willing to cheer you up. I am looking forward to seeing the smile on your face. I am looking forward to seeing you achieve academic success!

Hi everyone! My name is Adelle, and I am a second-year BScH Major in Psychology pursuing a minor in Health Studies. This is my first year with PASS and I am so excited to meet you all. I love python, yoga, reading, and hiking. My favourite library on campus is Douglas with the Law Library as a close second. I can’t wait to share any words of wisdom from what I learned in my first year, and how to survive courses like linear algebra and Psych 100. I promise it’s possible, and made much better with the friends you make along the way. Please know you can always talk to PASS advisors including myself, I know they helped me greatly with my first year.

I’m so excited to be a part of the PASS team this year and look forward to helping everyone with a smooth transition to university life.
