Excellence Lives Here

Students participating in the Summer ACE Program are strongly encouraged to consider living on campus for the duration of their program. Living in residence provides students with the skills to be successful during their post-secondary education in Canada. Additionally, on average students living on campus are 15.6% more likely to successfully complete the ACE program than their peers who chose to live off campus.

“During the ACE program, the residence members gave me insight on how to succeed in academics and have an invigorating campus life. As the residence department says “excellence lives here.” I enjoyed meeting everyone in the program and got a strong bond by getting through the difficulties together as one. This residence did not merely provide a place to sleep, but a place to make life-long friends and experiences that will last throughout my life." – Jun, past ACE student
