As everyone shared their experiences, we started relating to each other on the basis of similarities and difficulties we were facing being an international student. As a part of the study group I gained knowledge about learning centers and library for doing research on our assignments through various searching filters, which made our journey easy being a Kwantlen student. I came to know about presentation tricks which would help me in my human resources program.
I got detailed information about support services available to me as an international student at KPU, and through the weekly sessions I have gotten better at managing my time, improved my presentation skills and learned how to connect with my Instructor.
The best part for me was when students shared their experiences with fellow students. This was really helpful as they were from students’ point of view, based on problems they had gone through, and we learnt from their mistakes.
The program was a mixture of fun and knowledge sharing. I would like to see more similar programs at KPU.
