I am a Gryphon! Transitioning from high school to university holds special challenges. There is often a new home, new identity to explore, new academic expectations and a new learning environment, but we believe the journey is the reward. We are proud to offer several transition and support services on campus to assist students in their transition to the University of Guelph.
