Photo essay: Welcome 2016 first-years

SFU’s Criminology Student Association hosted FROSH 2016 on Saturday, September 10. The event brought together over 60 first-year Criminology students for an exciting day of team building activities.
“We hosted the event to connect all the new Criminology students to help make the transition from high school to university easier. It can be terrifying to be at a new school – to take lectures in a room filled with 200 people – so we wanted to help ease first-years into university life by helping establish friendships with students in a similar situation,” says Queenie Ho, president of SFU’s Criminology Student Association.
"The event helped first-years meet their classmates, learn about the Criminology program and acclimatize to campus. Several upper-year volunteers were on hand during the event to answer any questions about SFU and being a university student."
The full-day event started by dividing participants into small groups to run an "Amazing Race" style competition that took contestants all over campus to solve mental puzzles and complete physical challenges. The event wrapped up with dinner and an opportunity to ask upper-year students questions about their SFU experience.
