All conversations with the Grad CRC / G2G are confidential – you share the information you are comfortable sharing and we will listen. We can usually meet with you quickly – there are no wait times and no fees for talking to a G2G!
Connecting with a G2G during drop-in hours is a great way to ask a quick question, find out more about a service or resource on campus, or find out more about how a G2G Peer Advisor might be able to help. You do NOT need an appointment to talk to a G2G at a drop-in session, just drop by! Find us at various locations on campus e.g., Student Family Housing, Grad Room; OISE lobby; Daniel’s Building; Bahen or the Exchange Cafe. Locations and times are advertised same-day on Grad CRC’s Twitter account (see feed at right) and on the Events & Workshops page on CLNx. If you decide while you are chatting that you would prefer to continue your conversation in a more private space, the G2G can help you book an appointment.
You can book an appointment with a G2G yourself by logging into the Career and Co-Curricular Learning Network (CLNx) system with your UTORID or by emailing us at email@example.com. Please do not include any details about your conflict/concern in your CLN booking or email. We normally meet in person, however, if this is not possible, we can also connect with you over Skype GradCRC_UofT /phone.
