To ensure you are supported and prepared for your transition to university and throughout the 2022-2023 academic year, we have developed two online resources to help you achieve a successful first year at St. Thomas University. 

New Student Orientation for Fall 2022 

The New STUdent Orientation has been designed to help you transition to university life. You will learn about what to expect in your courses, your new roles and responsibilities as undergraduate students, the many resources available to you and your success, and much more! You can also win prizes by completing the different modules! 

Academic Success at STU  

The Academic Success at STU resource will help you achieve the success you want in your courses. This resource has been designed to help you learn effective strategies in the academic skills you will use in your liberal arts coursework, such as note taking, reading, studying, test-taking, time management, and organization.

Both resources will remain available for you all year.
