Welcome to Osgoode! If we haven’t met before, I’m Ellen Schlesinger, one of Osgoode’s Student Success and Wellness Counsellors.
Many of you will be returning students who have a lay of the academic land but are now in hot pursuit of career opportunities. For first-year students, this is a brand new adventure. Law School can be experienced in many different ways. It can be exciting, intellectually challenging, and personally rewarding. It can also get intense and overwhelming. Or, sometimes life outside of our academics comes under fire.
That’s where the Wellness Office comes in. We offer free yoga and mindfulness programming or can assist you to access a variety of personal counselling options. A complete list of resources is at your fingertips on JustBalance.ca or you can visit the Osgoode counselling resource page of MyOsgoode.
I would also like to take a moment to do my own #OzWelcome to Michael Dougan, our new Counselling Intern, who will be working with me (and you!) this year.
All the very best for the year to come!
