New Student Orientation
Tuesday, September 3
Are you a new UVic undergraduate student? If so, count yourself in for New Student Orientation. This day-long event includes:
- An opening convocation ceremony during which you’ll be welcomed by the president of the university and officially become a Vike. Get inspired by this year’s keynote speaker Craig Kielburger, founder of Free the Children and co-founder of Me to We
- A free picnic lunch in the sunshine, complete with a lemonade stand
- An in-depth, faculty-specific tour of campus led by a senior student volunteer, and an introduction to your faculty by your dean
- Live music and a free hamburger or veggie burger at the President’s Welcome Barbecue
- A chance to check out all of the services and activities UVic has to offer at the interactive information fair
New Student Orientation is an opportunity to ask any questions you may have, make new friends and get you ready and excited for your first day of class. It’s a great way to jump into the UVic community, and when the day is done, you’ll really feel like a UVic student.
We encourage participants to register by August 15. Questions? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
