Section 1: University 1 Overview
1.1 Transition to University
The concept of “student success” is one of the highest priorities of the University of Manitoba, and University 1 is one of the main contributors to the fulfilment of this objective. Its three main pillars are academic advising, academic support and orientation. But University 1 is also much more. Built on the premise of “the freedom to choose”, it helps smooth out the normally difficult transition from high school to university. In short, University 1 is designed to give entering students the opportunity to adjust to university life and its academic demands, explore options, and gain experience before they make definitive decisions on their academic and career goals. Through one-on-one and group academic advising and programming, University 1 provides entering students with the opportunity and information to make informed choices.
