Advising Webinars

Advisor Webinar Series

The Lassonde Academic Advising team has recorded a series of webinars to assist our students with their studies and navigating administrative processes within Lassonde and at York. A webinar is an online video presentation that you can review anytime, anywhere, as long as you have an internet connection and speakers. Our webinars include bookmarks and are also transcribed for ease of use and to make notes should you wish.
