Start off on the right foot with the New Student Winter Orientation – January 4

November 26, 2018 — 

Joining us this January? You’re invited to Winter Orientation at the Fort Garry campus on January 4, 2019.  This event will prepare you for academic success, connect you to your faculty, allow you to meet other new students, and connect with upper year students as well.

Winter Orientation is open to all students starting at the U of M this January.

“If you have questions about university life, this is a great time to ask them,” said Ali Wood-Warren, First Year Centre Coordinator. “Faculty and current students will be on hand to provide answers and tips. It’s also an opportunity to meet other new students who are sharing the same experience. Attending Orientation is the best way for students to start their academic careers on the right foot, have some fun and make new friends.”

If you’re a new student to the U of M, register to attend New Student Winter Orientation to learn how to access services, supports and opportunities available to you. The information provided will help guide you to the tools to help you succeed academically, while faculty members and current students can help answer questions about university life, provide answers and tips. Learn about opportunities to get involved in on campus, including mentoring programs, student volunteering programs and more. Finally, check out everything that our campus has to offer – like great speakers, games and activities.

“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.
