Hello and welcome to Glendon!
While we’re all currently home and social distancing, we’re still very excited that you’ve chosen to embark on new adventures with us! Rest assured, despite these uncertain times, we’ll make sure you get all the info you need to Start Your Quest and prepare for the Fall.
Starting with… what in the world is Start Your Quest???
This is your hub for all things Glendon, developed BY and FOR students, to welcome you to campus. From emails to videos, quizzes and helpful tips, you’ll find everything you need to feel ready for this next stage of your life.
In the coming weeks, you’ll receive info about finances and budget management, selecting your courses, orientation, bilingualism, student wellness and more. Make sure you mark these emails as safe so that they don’t end up in your junk.
YOUR TASK FOR TODAY:
Join the #GL020 Facebook group. You can ask all your questions there and get to know your peers!

A note from Principal Ian Roberge during COVID-19:
As you are aware, courses will primarily be delivered online/remotely. Whatever limits may be placed on our physical presence on campus, I would like to assure you that our faculty and staff are committed to making sure your student experience and education remain second to none.
Come Fall, we will be welcoming you with the same excitement we have every year. As we speak, our dedicated Glendon faculty and staff are giving their full attention and working tirelessly to plan for an engaging, and enriching year, whether on campus – under public health guidelines to make sure everyone is safe – or afar. So, whether you are in the GTA, across the country or abroad, you will still be receiving that personalized Glendon experience that we have provided for over 50 years. We are working hard to meet your needs and that means delivering the most high-quality immersive course offerings and student services to help you succeed. As you begin your year, I would like to encourage you to take advantage of all the activities and opportunities we will have planned to make the most of your academic and student life.
Lastly, don’t forget to join our #GL2020 Facebook group to meet other students like you, chat with staff, and ask us any of your questions!
