Launching Memorial's Online Record of Experience (MORE)

University isn’t only about course work and studying. While academics will always be one of the key components of university life, it is equally important to use your time here to build your practical experience and explore as many things as possible. Through exploration, you will be able to discover:

  • What you are truly interested in;
  • What you are not interested in:

To help you answer these questions, Student Life has created a tool to help you to engage, explore, and gain experiences.

Memorial’s Online Record of Experience (MORE) is a new experiential tracking tool that provides students with the ability to record and capture their various experiences.

More than simply a record of student involvement or student activities, MORE uses reflection to transform activities into deeper learning experiences.
