How to be a Fresher: An Academic Troubleshoot Guide for UCD
So, you’ve made it this far! Through the CAO, PLC or getting on the wrong bus on Nassau Street, you’ve found yourself in UCD. Whether you’re doing Law, Zoology, Classics or Engineering going to college can be a big change, especially when it comes to the work you’re asked to do and the way in which you have to do it. This page will serve as a one-stop shop for any resources you might need to help you get the best results in college as well as listing the supports available to you if you might be falling behind.
These students have been around the block. You’re assigned to your Peer Mentor Group from your first Orientation week in UCD so that they can help you with any questions you have about how UCD works. Even if all of your mates from secondary school are in a different group and you’d rather be doing anything else than another icebreaker, your Peer Mentor knows a lot about campus and your course, and if they’re unsure about anything they can find it out for you from our next resource!
