Student Ombuds Services (SOS) is Bethune's academic student organization that provides free peer academic support services to York students. SOS provides a broad range of services, some targeted at incoming first year students. We understand how difficult the transition to university can be and we are here to help.
For Summer 2019 only our PASS program is running. Peer Mentoring, Peer Tutoring and Class Representatives will return in Fall 2019.
PASS Informal, structured, facilitated study groups
Peer Tutoring Free one-on-one drop-in tutoring
Peer Mentoring is provided to all first-year incoming students in the Faculty of Science. Peer Mentors also provide Advising to all York students, Monday to Friday in BC208.
Class Representatives strengthen ties between professors and students in the classroom and help keep their peers on track by organizing study groups.
SOS Wednesday Evening Seminars during the Fall and Winter semesters join us EVERY Wednesday evening from 5:30pm to 7:00pm in 320 Bethune College to learn about professional schools, career options, research opportunities on campus, and much more! Bethune College Peer Leaders present seminars, workshops, or open discussions over refreshments every Wednesday.
