First-Year Experience

Welcome and congratulations on your admission to the Faculty of Communication, Art and Technology (FCAT)!

We are excited to have you join us in the next chapter of your education. In FCAT, you will learn to be a problem solver, work in team environments with people from multiple disciplines, and find work in the ever-growing creative economy. Our teaching encourages creativity, innovation, and the exploration of ideas. The future is bright for students in FCAT and we are pleased that you will be joining us.

Activities for new undergraduate FCAT students:

All new students are encouraged to complete the SFU 101 Online Orientation as well as attend our program-specific activities.

Each of our programs will host online course planning and registration sessions in June, Welcome/Orientation Events late-August, and the faculty will host the 2nd annual Hile’kw: FCAT Welcome Event for all new undergraduate FCAT students September 22nd, 2017.

Each of these sessions will provide the opportunity to meet your fellow classmates, and connect with staff and faculty who will support your transition to SFU.
