Planning for a Successful College Experience
Assiniboine helps students achieve success by providing guidance, support, encouragement, advice, information and assistance wherever needed. We strive to provide a warm and friendly environment where students feel comfortable raising questions or concerns.
While many students make a smooth transition to college on their own, some may benefit from additional supports. Assiniboine’s goal is to help students plan for a successful college experience.
