Student Success Centre (SSC)

The Odette Student Success Centre is a unique environment geared towards personalized support and comprised of a team of highly skilled advisors. Our focus is on you, so we have created a centralized hub of information and assistance to help you along your university career. Some of the services we offer include:

 

FIRST-YEAR SUPPORT 
Your university career is one of the most important steps of your life. We want to help you get started on the right foot. Our knowledgeable advisors are available to help you make this transition easier. We want you to succeed. This is accomplished through academic, professional, career and peer support.

 

H.O.U.S.E. MENTORSHIP PROGRAM 
The H.O.U.S.E. (Helping Odette Undergraduate Students Excel) Program supports the transition of students into undergraduate studies at the Odette School of Business. The program ensures that incoming students connect with current student leaders who provide guidance, coaching and mentoring. Each student is assigned to a H.O.U.S.E. at the beginning of the year. The program also promotes upper-year student engagement and involvement in extracurricular activities.

 

TUTORING
We provide free tutoring for business students. The best method to improve your grades—or to maintain consistently strong grades—is to seek help early! This free tutoring support is provided in addition to instructor office hours and course teaching assistant support.

 

MID-TERM CHECK-IN 
First term—and first year—can be challenging for new students. Mid-terms and finals are often an especially stressful time. For this reason, our academic advisors outreach to students with less than a 60% average in all required first-year business courses, informing them about the resources and tools available to help them succeed.
