Month of Welcome

Whether you're a new or returning to SFU, this is the place to find all of the fun, informative and interactive events happening during the first few weeks of the Fall term.

Month of Welcome will celebrate the start of the term, connect you with fellow students, and get you excited to explore all that SFU has to offer. You can join community activities and events to meet new people, connect with peers who have similar interests, learn about the variety of student clubs and groups to get involved with, and be entertained and informed.
