LAMP 2.0 is a university-run group led by upper year students, designed to address needs of second-year students. LAMP mentors are high caliber student leaders representing all faculties who are carefully selected and extensively trained. For all LAMP 2.0 Leaders, the second-year experience is still a fresh memory, and they are sensitive to the challenges faced by students.
Are you going into 2nd year and anxious about course registration? Unsure of your module requirements or what electives to take? Do you wish you could talk to an upper year student who has been through the process before? Well, have no fear!! The Leadership and Academic Mentorship Program is proud to present LAMP 2.0. This program is your only opportunity to request a second year mentor in your faculty and program.

"My LAMP 2.0 mentor has literally become my friend. I realized that without a soph this year, I wanted an upper year's experience and knowledge would be beneficial. When I met my LAMP mentor , we found out we had a couple classes together. We have now become friends and I wish her the best in her Graduate program. She helped me a lot this year and I am grateful for her :)"
