By Kwantlen Polytechnic University Modified on August 09, 2017

Make this back to school season your best one yet.


Schedules, textbooks, and readings—oh my! The back to school season is right around the corner and while it’s important to enjoy the end of the summer, it’s also important to get ready for the new semester. Here’s a few ideas to make sure your September is full of success.

Go to Orientation
Starting at university for the first time? Register for new student orientation. Explore campus, discover the services and resources available, meet other students, and make new friends. Orientation day is a great opportunity to see the university in person, ask questions, and alleviate those first day jitters. Not a new student? Get involved as an orientation leader and share your experiences with others!

Visit the Learning Centre
Getting back into the groove of school and studying can be tough — especially if you’ve had the summer off. Take advantage of studying supports, tutoring, library resources, and more. KPU’s learning centreslearning centres offer in person and online tutoring, peer support, and host workshops to help you hone in on your study skills and boost your grades.
