Senior Transition Mentor, Sam D., and his first year Transition Mentor Group!

The Victoria College Transition Mentorship Program, sponsored by the Victoria College Office of the Dean of Students, is an essential part of the first year experience of all incoming students.

All incoming students are paired with a Transition Mentor who will help guide them through their first year at Victoria College! Transition Mentors orient new students to university life by providing them with opportunities to meet other incoming students and to engage with the University of Toronto and Victoria College through Commuter Orientation and Orientation Week.

Transition Mentors also host weekly Success Series Programming throughout the duration of the academic school year (see our "Success Series Programming" tab for more info!), and send weekly emails to their mentees about Vic events, programs, workshops, and resources.

Through active participation in the Transition Mentorship Program, incoming students will have the foundation for a successful transition into university, and likewise will gain the skills and knowledge to thrive, both academically and extracurricularly, throughout their undergraduate degree!
