The ASKme program is returning to the St. George campus, running from August 21 – September 15. The booths, which feature bright orange signs and the friendly faces of upper-year students and recent alumni, will be popping up all over campus to welcome students and share helpful information.

This Student Life initiative creates a welcoming environment for new students as they arrive on campus, helping them feel more confident as they navigate their surroundings. Over the last academic year, ASKme volunteers helped answer questions from thousands of students.

As staff and faculty, you can participate by wearing an ASKme button to show you’re available to answer questions. If you don’t have one already, you can pick up a button at any of the following locations:

  • King’s College Rd. & College St., at the campus gates
  • St. George St. & College St., at Koffler Student Services Centre
  • St. George St. & Willcocks St., near Sidney Smith Hall

Remember, you don’t need to have all the answers to be helpful. Here are some general places to refer students:

Wear your ASKme button from August 21 – September 15. ASKme is a Student Life initiative. For more information, contact Diana Scattolon at diana.scattolon@utoronto.ca or 416-946-7752.
