There is a particular focus on developing a community of first-year peers who are studying business. Students will have opportunities to meet and build connections with Haskayne faculty and staff through activities and events designed to complement coursework, offered right where they live. Because students in this community are in the same academic program, they can share an ongoing support network.

  • Opportunities to create study and activity groups with other Haskayne students
