Student Life

We offer a series of events and activities to create a well-rounded student life experience, which goes beyond the classroom. Through our three-tiered Student Life program, we help:

  • students integrate into the diverse Canadian culture;
  • build students professional network through meeting with industry professionals;
  • students gain real-life experience through volunteer committees; and
  • connect students with established alumni in a mentorship capacity.

Each month the PACE Student Life Program create opportunities to celebrate special moments with fellow classmates as well as the larger university community.

Read what some of the students have experienced.

"Volunteering for culture night was a great experience and a nice break from studying. I remember thinking I was too busy to get involved, but I'm really glad I did as it was one of my most memorable experiences at PACE. I helped plan and set up the decorations which was fun, plus I got to know a bunch of people in different programs.”

Rachel O’Conner, Graduate, Human Resource Management - 2015, Physcial Damage Re-engineering Communication Lead, MPI

“Having a mentor helped me a lot when I came in as an international student; therefore I too want to help and guide others as much as possible. I feel that interacting with individuals outside of my social network provides great learning opportunities. It is chance to share ideas, inspire and motivate one another. A win-win situation! I am now a mentor and I have mentored three students from PACE HRM program”

Guneet Kaur, Graduate, Human Resource Management - 2013, Recruitment Coordinator at Great-West Life
