"A great benefit for myself and other SLG leaders is the opportunity we have to network with faculty and build relationships with students. The connections made with these esteemed professionals and aspiring tyros, in a multitude of departments, have not only enriched my UFV experience but have allowed me to become a recognizable face on campus"

Britt, SLG Mentor

"As a student, I have always been curious and passionate to learn. As a leader, I am able to share this passion with my fellow students. I get to learn more as a leader and get to know my fellow students and make new friendships too!"

Monique, SLG Leader (History)
