Are you looking to maintain your grades or improve them? Whatever your goal, GEARS is for you!

Starting university is a busy time for everyone. It can be tough to carve out dedicated time to review specific course material while you are adjusting to a new schedule. GEARS are weekly drop-in sessions that help you to fit in that important review time.

The benefits of attending GEARS:

  • Successful upper-year students provide guidance on reviewing materials and studying for tests.
  • Dedicated, regular study time.
  • Optimize study habits and time management skills.
  • Get to know your classmates and meet upper-year students.
  • All sessions are drop-in, no registration required. Unable to attend an entire session? Join GEARS for part of one.
  • Judgement-free zone. No marks are issued and your attendance is not reported to your instructors.
  • Helps you integrate how to learn with what you need to learn.
