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 fourth year majoring in Life Sciences. This is my third year being involved in PASS and second year as the Assistant Coordinator of this program. Besides PASS, I am also an ASUS Advisory Board Director, a Crisis Responder for Kids Help Phone, research student at the Aging and Health Program in the Faculty of Health Science, and part of a few clubs and programs on campus such as AMP mentorship program and QCCGHR. I also enjoy reading, hiking, and playing volleyball and tennis. 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. I am super excited to meet you all and welcome you to the Queen’s community, and am here to support you and help you navigate any of your questions or concerns. So definitely reach out- we’re always one message/email away. 

Sanyu Rashford

Hello everyone! My name is Sanyu, and I am one of the new PASS coordinators for the 2021-2022 school 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 linguistics major with a minor in psychology and this year I am doing an internship with the Faculty of Arts and Science Student Services through the Queens University Internship Program (QUIP). Outside of school I enjoy watching basketball, painting with my friends, and watching scary movies. I know that the transition to university life can be a difficult one. There are a lot of changes, and it can feel overwhelming but there are always services to help you here at Queens. We are here at PASS to help make that transition a little easier.  If you ever have any questions, please reach out to us, we are always happy to help!

PASS Advisors

Riley Geisler

Hi everyone, my name is Riley and I’m a third-year Life Sci spec with the hope of pursuing a career in neurological medicine. I’m very excited to be returning to my role in PASS this year, and look forward to helping out as best I can. I can be found in the ARC or Stauffer, but given the circumstances of this past year I'm usually on my front lawn in Vic Park. Aside from PASS, I'm the president of CARRM@Queen's, an Orientation Coordinator, and a powerlifter. 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 us at PASS anytime and myself or one of our many other amazing advisors will help you out, can’t wait to meet you all! 

Sarah Bahreinian

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

This is my third year as a PASS advisor and I couldn’t be more excited! I became a PASS advisor in second 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 and the co-chair for QSACK (the Queen's chapter of the Sexual Assault Centre Kingston). I am also working on my thesis in the Department of Public Health Sciences, researching how the pandemic has affected rates of intimate partner violence in the Kingston area. 

PASS has always been my favourite extracurricular activity. My two-hour PASS shifts are the highlight of my week and I really cherish the connections I get to build with students. I’m grateful for the students who trust me, who open up, and who are 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 Bacon

Hey everyone!  
My name is Emma, and I'm in my third year of majoring in Biology and minoring in Music. This is my first year being a PASS advisor, and I am beyond excited to work with this team! I hope to help out as best I can. Aside from PASS, this year, I am also the director for ASUS Review, and I'm involved in Operation Smiles, Queen's Chronic Pain Association, ASUS Lost Paws, and QPHSS. You can usually find me helping out in one of the labs in Biosci, drinking a latte at Crave, or practicing on my violin in Harrison-Lecaine.  
I know that first year of university can be stressful. When I was in first year, I knew nothing about what courses to take and where to find my prerequisites for my program. PASS was instrumental in helping me through my first year, and I hope to help out many of you in return! I'm looking forward to meeting all of you! 

Samara Hurowitz

Hi! My name is Samara, but I just go by Sam. I am entering my second year and I am hoping to major in Global Development as well as completing my Law certificate and hopefully, one day peruse a career in Law. This will be my first year with PASS and I am extremely excited to reach a broader range of the Queen’s community. This year I will also be QFLIP’s (Queens Female Leadership in Politics) Equity and Sustainability Coordinator, so I am very familiar with EDII. After finishing a year in residence during covid I understand how difficult it can be to know where to reach out to when feeling overwhelmed or lost. That being said, I am thrilled to welcome the class of 2025 and help in any way I possibly can!  

Christina Pilgrim

Well, Hello There!  

My name is Christina, and I am a fourth-year student studying Sociology, History, and Employment Relations. I am looking forward to being a PASS advisor for the 2021-2022 school year and getting to know you all. There are so many fantastic opportunities for First-Year students, and sometimes it can be tricky figuring out which ones are best for you. As the Nickelodeon Queen, Miranda Cosgrove once said, "live life, breathe air, I know somehow you're going to get there!”  

Yiheng Li

Hi!  My name is Yiheng, and I’m entering my fourth year as a Biology and Con-Ed student, with teachables in Biology and Chemistry.  PASS is a service that I personally used when I was in first-year and found really helpful, so I’m super excited to be an advisor!  Besides PASS, I also volunteer as a crisis-line responder with SACK (Sexual Assault Centre Kingston) and other organizations.  I’m excited to meet everyone, and hopefully help you navigate through your first year at Queen’s :) 

Phoebe Gao

Hi everyone! My name is Phoebe and I am heading into my fourth year at Queen’s majoring in Life Science with a minor in Statistics :) This is my second year as a PASS advisor and I am beyond excited to be able to work with this team again to work with you.   

Beyond PASS, I volunteer with Student Academic Success Services (SASS) as a Peer Learning Advisor, as the Human Resources Deputy for Alma Matter Society (AMS), and as the vice-president of Operation Smiles.   

Transitioning from high school to university can be so overwhelming, and I know how hard it is balancing your own well-being, academics, and any extracurriculars, so I’m so excited to meet some of you, help you thrive at your own university journey, and help you ease into the struggles that come with the university transition.  

Veronica Duffy

Hi everyone! My name is Veronica and I am a third-year majoring in Life Sciences, with an undeclared specialization. This is my first year as a PASS advisor, and I am extremely excited to see what this year has in store! I used the PASS resources when I was in first year, so I am very much looking forward to assisting others in the same way. I definitely found the transition between high school and university to be difficult, and felt as though I had no idea what was going on when choosing courses and starting classes. I think that the PASS services are so beneficial and should be used to the fullest. I have experienced Queen’s both online and in-person, and am excited to help first years smooth their transition.  

Becca Kim

Hi everyone! My name is Becca and I’m going into my third year of the Life Sciences major and the certificate in French for Professionals. This is my first year as a PASS advisor and I’m really looking forward to working with the team! Aside from PASS, you can usually find me at Richardson Stadium playing soccer with the women’s soccer team, studying in Stauffer library, or going for a walk down by the pier. Starting your first year can definitely be nerve-racking, but we’re here to help make your transition as smooth as possible, so please don’t hesitate to reach out! I can’t wait to meet you all!  

Aasiya Remtulla

Hi everybody! My name is Aasiya and I am going into my fourth year in the Life Sciences Specialization program. This is going to be my first year with PASS and I am really looking forward to PASSing along (pun intended >:)) all the first-year lessons I learned the hard way to the class of 2025! Personally, I wish I knew about this service earlier, I definitely would have saved myself a lot of headache during that stressful time in my life. Nevertheless, I am super excited to help any and all first years through their transition into university and beyond!  

Once campus opens up again, you can probably find me in Bracken library doing schoolwork or designing graphics for Scientista and/or the QU Bioinformatics Club. I am also excited to be a supervisor with the Peer Support Centre, Upper Year Mentor, and to start my 499 project in the Maurice lab this year.  

As someone who has recently re-evaluated her long-term life goals and future career aspirations, I understand how daunting the task can be. However, I found solace in talking about it with friends, mentors, and peers alike and I have truly found these experiences all very rewarding. As such, I hope to continue this through my work with PASS, to make sure no first year has to go it alone with any issues they may be facing.  

Mary McKeddie

Hey everyone! 

My name is Mary and I’m entering my third year in ConEd with teachables in History and English. This is my first year as a Peer Advisor and I’m so excited to welcome the class of ’25 to Queen’s this year! Outside of PASS, you can find me at the Student Life Centre in the JDUC, volunteering with the Social Issues Commission, participating in GirlUp Queen’s, and studying in Mitchell Hall (probably with a coffee in hand). I know that first year can be challenging but the PASS team is here for you to help make the transition easier, so please reach out to us with any questions or concerns! 

Adam Ptack

Hi Everyone! My name is Adam, I’m from Montreal, and I am a 4th year student majoring in life sci with a minor in music. This will be my first year as a PASS advisor and I am really excited to get started! I took advantage of the PASS advisors when I was in first year, so I know first-hand how amazing this program is. When I’m not studying or advising you can find me practicing the piano or saxophone, or in Botterell working on my research project. I know how stressful the transition to university can be so please don’t hesitate to ask a PASS advisor any questions you may have! 

Kate Hunker

Hi Everyone! My name is Kate, and I am a fourth-year student majoring in psychology and minoring in health studies at Queen’s. This is my second year as a PASS advisor, and I’m so excited to be a part of this awesome team again and welcome first year students to the Queen’s community for another year! Outside of PASS, you can find me helping out with research in some of the psychology labs at Queen’s, or at Student Wellness Services volunteering in their Peer Health Educator program. In my free time, I love to go for hikes and read good books. 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 will be going into my fourth year of university as a Life Science student. I have really enjoyed my time at Queens and look forward to my final year meeting new people and spending time with my friends. When I am not at school I enjoy playing board games with my family and videogames with my friends. I also love skiing in the winter and wake surfing during the summer. I enjoy going outside and having fires, or just going for a walk/hike. I understand from past experiences on how stressful first year can be in general, and I am excited to continue to give help to first year students in their academic planning to hopefully lower the stress from that perspective. Thanks, Jacob

Ava Khansari

Hi everyone! My name is Ava, I am a second-year Kinesiology student and I am from Aurora, Ontario. This would be my first year as a PASS advisor and I could not be more excited. Besides PASS, I am the Junior Athletics Commissioner of PHEKSA (Physical Health Education and Kinesiology Student’s Association) and the Speakers Executive of QPS (Queen’s Pharmacy Society). I love spending my time playing sports with friends, working out, or going to grab coffee. After completing my first year, I know how stressful and overwhelming it can be to figure out classes while processing all the changes that come with the transition to university. I can’t wait to share some tips that I find useful and hopefully make you feel more comfortable at Queen’s. I look forward to getting to know a lot of you and answering any questions/concerns you might have; I am always open to talk!

Jerod Miksza

Hi everyone! My name is Jerod, and I am fourth-year student majoring in biochemistry. This past year I did an internship at Environment and Climate Change Canada as an assistant toxicologist, and I am planning on pursuing a career in environmental law. Aside from PASS, I’ve also been involved with the COR (Campus Observation Room), Society of Conservation Biology, and the Queen’s University Chamber Orchestra.   

This is my first year as a PASS volunteer, so I am looking forward to being a part of this team and meeting many of you! Throughout my time at Queen’s, I know I’ve done my fair share of jumping around when deciding on both a major and a future career, so I’m happy to help address any concerns. We at PASS are here to help make your first-year as stress-free as possible, so please don’t hesitate to reach out! 

Susan Wang

Hello everyone! My name is Susan, and I’m entering my fourth year of applied economics and concurrent education, with intermediate-senior teachables in math and history. I’m an international student from Wuhan, China. This will be my first year as a PASS advisor, and I’m really looking forward to it! I really like yoga, swimming, and outdoor activities. I can’t wait to meet you all and help you through a smooth transition into university.

Sangeetha Saravanan

Hi everyone! My name is Sangeetha Saravanan, and this is my first year as a PASS advisor. I’m in my third year of a Life Science Specialization, and I’m from Markham, Ontario! I love to bake, read and try new food places! Outside of PASS, I’m involved with Queen’s Health Outreach, the QISA Dance Team, and I’m also 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!
