What we offer

Science Student Leadership Program (Peer Mentors)

Our peer mentors are here to help, whether you’re lost, worried, stressed out or need advice from an upper-year student.

Mentors are available throughout the academic year! They are an enthusiastic bunch that know all the ins and outs of university life, tools for academic life and our faculty. 

Science Student Services and the Peer Mentors host a variety of annual events such as:

  • fundraising for the Fredericton Community Kitchens
  • Halloween week
  • Halloween for Hunger
  • A night of fun at Kingswood
  • Winter Carnival

Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) Program

Is there something you didn’t quite get in a lecture? The PAL program is designed to help you process and understand the information you received. PAL is the ultimate support system for first-year students in Biology, Chemistry, Earth Science and Physics. With the added bonus of learning new ways to take notes, prepare for class/midterms and a great way to have support amongst your peers. Students who attend PAL will on average earn a half-full letter grade higher.

The Centre offers 1-hr sessions on Monday and Thursday evenings in the Science Library, sign-up is available at the library's main desk. Looking for a study workshop? MLC also provides 40-minute math study skills workshops for all students who are interested in making the most of their study time.
