Eagle Connect; Your New Student Community

Prepare for the start of your first year at UTM (home of the Eagles Mascot) with Eagle Connect. This initiative is available to all new UTM students; you will: 

  • Be placed in a summer community (or Eagle Squad), in which you will be given an upper year mentor/ guide to assist you through the summer months!
  • Connect with other new students as you transition into university together!
  • Receive a weekly interactive newsletter highlighting due dates, deadlines, and giving you useful information to ensure you are ready for the new year, and the start of your UTM experience!
  • Participate in exciting weekly online learning sessions, led and designed by your community mentor/guide, to make sure you are fully equipped and ready to go!
  • Be able to ask questions! Your upper year guide and mentor is ready and available. Just email them, and they will get back to you with everything they can, as well as personal insights and experiences.

All new students will be placed into Squad automatically, with a Student Guide and Mentor. Your Squad will be ready to join on June 8th.
