Enhance your Wellness

Your time at VIU is about more than being a student. It’s a time to develop your interpersonal life, to expand your comfort zone, to explore what you enjoy and what you value. Take advantage of the many opportunities to be involved on campus like surf trips, student leadership positions, Positive Space Alliance workshops, or the community garden.

“Students participating in at least one extracurricular activity enjoy at more fulfilling university experience.”

Before, when you shared a Google document with your collaborators and granted them the editing rights they could edit anything in it. But with "Suggested Edits" you, as the owner of the document, can control this editing process by allowing collaborators to make only suggestions which you can either accept or reject.

This new feature is not available on Google Docs for mobile.
