NEW: Mentorship Program!!

The Muslim Students' Association is starting up a mentorship program and we are looking for volunteers! Mentors will be the sister/brother to new students by helping them to navigate through their first year as a Muslim student at UofG. A mentor is someone who is there as a friend to answer questions and offer support spiritually, socially and academically by directing them to relevant resources on campus. Being their Jummah Prayer buddy, studying together, or going to coffee are just some of the ways you can help us make new students feel welcome among their Muslim community on campus!

Fill out the application

If you have any questions, please email msa@uoguelph.ca with the subject heading “MENTORSHIP”
