Together at Dal: Connecting new students to the university community



What is Together@Dal?

Together@Dal is a program for new students that provides a great way for you to meet other students, develop a sense of academic belonging and become connected to the university community before and during your first semester.

Together@Dal is FREE to all new students!

What do sessions look like?

Each week, your Together@Dal group will meet online with your upper-year mentors for one hour. You will:

  • Share experiences in a welcoming and respectful space
  • Get to know others in your Faculty or program
  • Participate in engaging activities
  • Discuss your transition to university and academic life

You will also have the opportunity to collect participation and reflection badges for different events and opportunities at Dalhousie throughout the year!

Together@Dal will not appear on your transcript, so you will not have any exams or homework in the program.

Why attend Together@Dal?

  • Ask questions about transitioning into first year
  • Connect with classmates and create your academic community
  • Gain real-life insight from peers, student mentors, faculty, and more
  • Explore skills and opportunities to help you make the most of your university experience

  • Start building your Co-curricular Record, a document that records your volunteer and extra-curricular activities
