Peer Academic Coaching

Peer Academic Coaches offer peer-to-peer support to help you navigate the transition to university. Our coaching team is made up of successful senior students that want to help you get off to a good start. Connect with a coach to help you build a study schedule, discuss note-taking methods, learn effective study strategies and more.

Coaches are available for:

One-on-one Appointments

  • Students can meet one-on-one with a coach for a 25-minute check-in appointment
  • Go to the Student Success Portal to book a Peer Academic Coaching appointment
  • Topics to chat about may include how to: create a useful schedule, reduce procrastination, read digital text effectively, take meaningful notes, study for exams or whatever questions are on your mind! 

Connect with our peer academic coaches when…

  • You are feeling overwhelmed.
  • You’re looking for study strategies and advice on how to succeed academically.
  • You need some extra help managing your schedule.
  • You want to chat with a senior student about life as a university student or to discover opportunities to get involved or volunteer in the Laurier community.

Get Stuff Done Sessions

Please review campus specific details in the tabs below.

We all have stuff to get done but sometimes it's hard to find the motivation to get started - that's why we have Get Stuff Done (GSD) Sessions!

  • Join Peer Academic Coaches and your peers at the same-time-same-place every week to stay accountable and get to work.
  • Only have 30 minutes to join? No problem - stay for as little or as long as you like. These sessions are great for students who know what they have to get done, but need some motivation to set a goal and focus on a task.
  • GSDs are open to all students so bring a friend or two or three every week to dedicate time to getting stuff done. 

Get Stuff Done sessions are open to all students. Stay for as long or as little as you like!
