These gathering spaces provide a shared place for all Aboriginal students to socialize, hold special events, and receive advocacy and support. Theresa Gladue, the Aboriginal student advisor, can work with you to help promote your personal and professional success as you journey in pursuit of your post-secondary education. Computers and internet access are also available for students at these locations.
