Experience STU: University Preparation Camp for Indigenous Youth
Experience STU – a university preparation camp for Indigenous youth – is a three-day program designed to offer Indigenous youth who are currently in grades 10, 11, and 12 the opportunity to discover what it’s like to be a student at St. Thomas University.
This free camp runs from Thursday, May 4 to Sunday, May 6.
Indigenous youth from across the province will experience first-hand what it’s like to be a university student by living in a St. Thomas residence, touring the campus, dining at the campus meal hall, learning from award-winning professors, taking part in fun activities, engaging in Wabanaki cultural teachings, and becoming familiar with the beautiful city of Fredericton, NB.
This program is a great way for youth to learn about available post-secondary opportunities, to prepare for their future transition into university, and to be informed about the supports and services available to them, as they enter these institutions.
