Capilano University is located in North Vancouver.
Many students from different countries
come to this university to study.
Some students come to study English
in a program called “English for Academic Purposes” (EAP).
For Feras, doing volunteer work is very important.
He says that if you help
other people, one day,
other people will help you.
Students in the EAP program
The students in the EAP program
must join special activities,
go to workshops outside of their classes,
or do volunteer work.
These kinds of activities are called Community Engagement.
They help students meet new people and enjoy new experiences.
Activities for students
Some of these activities take place at the university.
For example, in September,
there is a Student Orientation meeting
to give information about student life at the university.
In October, to celebrate Halloween,
students can go to the university Halloween party.
They can also go to Student Success workshops
to learn tips about studying.
