What is Homeroom?

Homeroom is a pilot initiative developed for first-year undergraduate students, though anyone can join during the winter 2022 semester, that provides a space for you to connect to other students. Through peer-to-peer facilitated virtual and in-person experiences you will meet and bond with other new Concordia students and learn how to navigate the university experience together. In weekly Homerooms (known as PODS) led by upper-year students, you’ll discuss a wide array of must-know topics that will help ease the transition to Concordia all while meeting new people and allowing you to co-develop new skills that will propel you through your first year of university and beyond. Homeroom is offered by the Dean of Students Office.

How Homeroom works

  • Weekly 1-hour sessions with your POD via Zoom that take place between 9am and 9pm EST

  • Sessions for the 2021-2022 start during the week of September 13th and continue throughout the Winter 2022 semester

  • Each Homeroom POD consists of up to ~15 students

  • Activities include workshops, games, discussions, and ways to get to know your fellow students

  • You will have access to your Student Facilitator during the meetings and office/lounge hours, and via email throughout the week 

  • You will have access to Concordia professionals to help answer any questions you may have along the way

  • Opportunities to connect with the whole community via special events, games, and workshops that Homeroom students have access to


Participants will receive a notation on their Co-Curricular Record, a certificate of completion, and receive additional perks based on attendance and participation.
