Moving away from home for the first time can be stressful for students. Having to worry about school work, finances, and all other things that come along with being independent can be overwhelming for some students.
At Ray Lawson Hall, we employ six Residence Advisors (RAs) who are senior students living in residence to help incoming students make the transition to being away from home and becoming independent. They are there to give students guidance and support, and to share their expertise as senior students who understand what you're going through. Take advantage of their knowledge and experience.
The college also offers the support of counsellors for students at no cost. Click here for information on Sault College Counselling Services
