EagleConnect: Your New Student Community
Excited for September, but don’t know where to start? Look no further than EagleConnect – an online program designed to make your transition into university as smooth and successful as possible. Starting in early June, there will be new interactive modules uploaded each week to Quercus (UTM’s online learning platform), filled with key information, deadlines, and fun ways to get to know your new classmates. Each community, known as an “Eagle Squad,” is led by an upper-year student leader who is there to support you along your journey and answer your questions! You are automatically enrolled into EagleConnect and will receive an email before the program starts letting you know exactly how to access it.
