Annual event eases new students into life on campus
It’s the start of a new academic year and for incoming undergraduate students, the first big event is New Student Orientation. The event, designed to welcome new students to campus and prepare them for the next step in their academic careers, takes place on Sept. 4 on the Fort Garry campus. New Student Orientation is open to all new students starting at the U of M this fall.
“We really want students to feel like they belong here, that this isn’t just where they go to class, but that this is their campus now and they are an important part of what goes on here,” said Ali Wood-Warren, First Year Centre Coordinator.
