EPAs are enthusiastic and approachable peer leaders who represent the Engineering community at Chestnut Residence. EPAs support students in the Engineering Science, Core 8, and TrackOne programs by designing and delivering impactful programs that ease student transition and aid in academic success. Their role is to help fellow Engineering students transition to University and Engineering life. Some examples of programs they have facilitated and helped to support in the past are mock midterms, study sessions in collaboration with TAs, Dinner with Your Profs, and industry nights. EPAs work with Chestnut’s live-in Faculty in Residence member (Dr. Chirag Variawa) on some programs, and are supervised by the Student Life Programs Coordinator within the Residence Life Office. They work closely with Academic Mentors, who are student staff members who do the same type of programming for Arts & Science students.

EPAs also work closely with other campus partners and the Engineering First Year Office. In total there are three EPAs at Chestnut.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the Chestnut Residence Life Office at or 416-585-3160 or you can connect with our Student Life Programs Coordinator at
