AFOW enabled us to really get to know the students of the School of Accounting and Finance and was really the first event where we were able to build connections with students that we now see as our closest friends and valued mentors. The activities were super unique and fun and getting food at many of the events was definitely a plus!

AFOW was one of our most memorable experiences in first year. Not only was it our first interaction with the SAF community, it was also where we met some of our closest friends. Our unforgettable experience in first year inspired us to stay involved throughout our years in university, and now we have the privilege of planning it!

AFOW allowed us to step out of our comfort zone and build relationships that helped us survive first year! The SAF community is close-knit and supportive towards each other, especially towards first years during the orientation and club crawl events.There will always be an upper year or faculty member who is willing to guide you throughout your undergraduate journey.
