Welcome Day & Events

Welcome Day is for all new undergraduate students starting at SFU this summer. Join us in person on Saturday, May 6, 2023!

If you're a brand new university student coming straight from high school, transferring from another post-secondary institution or an international student, we have a whole suite of orientation activities tailored for you. They'll give you the opportunity to:

  • Meet your fellow HIVE members and HIVE Leader, staff, plus others who will be a part of your new community 
  • Learn about the larger SFU community
  • Connect with your fellow peers during your free lunch
  • Explore your campus
  • Find out more about your program of study, and more! 

RSVP to Welcome Day

All new SFU undergraduates are invited—and encouraged—to attend Welcome Day! An invitation email will be sent to you in mid-April. More information will be sent the week before Welcome Day. Keep an eye on your SFU inbox and don't forget to RSVP!
