The TRU Steps Towards Success series is an opportunity for undergraduate students to connect with peers, learn how to access resources on campus, and engage in skill-building interactive sessions. This series will cultivate a sense of belonging, boost student well-being, and empower students to take ownership over their own success.

Sessions will include content on study skills, time management, stress and anxiety management, and more! Students will walk away from this three-part campfire series with confidence to tackle the Winter semester, a plan to achieve their own definition of success, and the tools to support them in taking their next steps.

What is a campfire session?

Campfire Sessions begin like a traditional presentation, with a speaker at the front of the room presenting an idea to a group of people. After 15 minutes, the focus shifts from the presenter to the audience. For the remainder of the session, the presenter becomes a facilitator, inviting comments, insights, and questions from those around the room.

Campfire sessions allow attendees to drive their own learning and share experiences with others, which also assists with networking and connecting with others.

Come join us!

Our facilitators have prepared for engaging discussions with you! We are looking forward to coming together for chatting, laughing, learning, and delicious snacks!

Join us for three Thursdays in January to sharpen your academic skills. With two session options to choose from each week, there is something that can fit your schedule!

Keep an eye out for more information regarding the next LEADership conference in the summer of 2020.

The purpose of the conference is to encourage aspiring and active student leaders to explore their knowledge, skills and values as they relate to leadership. Students will have an opportunity to network with other students and hear from Kamloops and TRU community members as they offer unique perspectives on leadership.

The 2019 TRU LEADership Conference, LEAD to Change, was a fantastic day of learning and fun. Thank you to everyone who came out!
