GIS successfully launched our cross-year student support system called “Relay Program” at the start of the 2021 semester.
Based on student requests, our new Relay Program aims to facilitate making friendships across the GIS community by setting up groups of students from different years. It is designed to help welcome our new students, make new friends, as well as give a place for students to assist each other with questions they may have as they move through their GIS career and beyond.
As students move up in years, each Relay group passes down what they have learned to the years below them, creating a long line of learning for each new generation of students.
Due to the COVID-19 situation, the first meeting was held on Zoom, but in future years it will be held in person.
As the Relay Program grows, it will help students learn from each other’s experiences at GIS, passing on some of the tips and tricks they’ve each picked up from year to year! As you can see it went pretty well!
