Academic Development | first year
This one-day event organized by Student Affairs provides first year students with an overview of the range of services available at UTM to assist you. Participants will learn about services provided by the university as a whole as well as by academic department.
Each academic department meets with its students for 60-90 minutes. In previous years the Management Department has organized a panel session comprised of representatives from the UCS, SMA, and core first year professors (economics, accounting, and management 100). This is an excellent opportunity to hear about how classes are run and get advice from your peers on making the best of your first year.
