Welcome Day


Are you a new undergraduate student coming straight from high school? Are you transferring from another post-secondary institution? Welcome Day is for you!

Join us for this informative day which will help you start classes with confidence. The day will highlight the many resources available to you, introduce you to your faculty, help you find your way around campus and, of course, connect you to other new students.

If you have a confirmed room in residence, and/or you are an International student, there are additional orientation activities available for you.
