Welcome to
ISAP Summer Start

What is ISAP Summer Start?

ISAP Summer Start combines orientation, academic preparation, and disciplinary immersion experiences to kick-start your post-secondary learning journey.

ISAP Summer Start 2021 dates: August 23, 24, 25

Note: ISAP Summer Start 2021 will be planned as an online experience due to Covid-19 Precautions; with three days of exciting programming to select from, Choose your Own Adventure style (all paths lead to happy endings!)

ISAP Summer Start is an opportunity to…

  • Orient yourself to the USASK Student Experience
  • ISAP Summer Start has been designed to help orient you to the diverse resources, learning platforms, and community-networks that will ground your academic experiences and adventurous choices as a new University of Saskatchewan student. Returning ISAP students and upper-year ISAP alumns are also welcome, with sessions designed for returners, too!
  • Enhance your learning skills
  • In Summer Start you will participate in workshops that enhance your learning abilities. Examples include sessions like time management, math readiness, writing for University, and a keynote from historian Dr. Ben Hoy.
  • Develop relationships with faculty and staff
  • All of our sessions are led by ISAP instructors, staff, academic advisors, and other campus friends. Having a wide range of facilitators will allow you to develop these relationships early on – after Summer Start, if you hit bumps in the road, you’re going to know who to call!
  • And more!
  • Meet your fellow ISAP students, try out a sample lecture, start your day with a grounding circle, and connect in real time with one of our Trish Monture Centre Indigenous Academic Advisors. Let’s get excited as you chart your educational journey!

Registration Open June 1st
