Get ready for uni is August

Fifty-five incoming, first-year students from across Atlantic Canada spent two day learning about writing and academic life at university.

Student workshops included:

  • Listening to lectures and note-taking

  • Writing project outlining and development

  • Writing in the disciplines

  • Professor’s roundtable

  • Grammar and syntax

Feedback from students who attended was great.

“The workshop give you a chance to experience a small slice of the university life.”
”I learned valuable skills and I also made friends!”
”The lecture note-taking session was very informative and taught me stuff I didn’t know.”
”I now feel more prepared for SMU and university.”
”I learned a lot that I wouldn’t have thought about.”

Next year’s Summer Writing Workshop is August 18th and 19th, 2020
