Message from the College Programs Assistant

Welcome to the Founders College Community!

Erica Alusio, College Programs Assistant, Founders College

If you are new to York, Founders will be your home on campus. If you are a returning student, welcome back!

Here at Founders College, we are heavily invested in student engagement and the student experience. We aim to provide all students with the opportunity to enhance the quality of their university life by organizing various events and initiatives throughout the academic year. We believe that with all of our support services, including: peer mentoring, academic workshops, and social events, no student should be left feeling isolated. Founders College is here to help you find your way through this organized chaos called university.

As the College Programs Assistant, I will help plan events and activities sponsored or cosponsored by the college. By participating in these events, you will be able to engage and network with fellow students, faculty members, staff and alumni, and at the same time, create positive memories of your years here. It is important to remember that university is not only a place to expand your knowledge, but a place to grow as an individual who will become an active member of society. So please take advantage of all the services we offer and feel free to pop by the Master’s Office anytime; our doors are always open!

Retire into yourself as much as possible. Associate with people who are likely to improve you. Welcome those whom you are capable of improving. The process is a mutual one. People learn as they teach.
