Get support as a new CNC student with Peer Connections. Here’s how the program can support your transition into post-secondary:

  • Make new friends and take part in events and activities.
  • Gain confidence and take on new challenges.
  • Learn about the services and supports that help you succeed.
  • Feel a sense of belonging to CNC community.

Peer Connections is open to all students studying at CNC.

The program has been of great help in my transition to college life. So, yes, I would like to continue as a Peer participant in the Spring.
