Why this Guide?
The Guide to First Year is produced by the Academic Advising Centre (AAC) and is designed for the beginning Memorial student. It is an invaluable resource that will provide answers to the many questions you may have as you prepare for your first year at Memorial.
Keep it accessible (in paper format, PDF format for your tablet or smart phone, or the online version) throughout your first year so that you will know where to go to address any questions and/or concerns that you may have.
As you begin to read through the guide you will probably encounter some terminology that you may not have been exposed to before now. Worry not! We have included an abridged glossery of terms to help you navigate the language of university life.
