Due to the ongoing public health crisis, New Student Orientation will be moving online. Keep an eye on your email for updates.

Welcome Session: Meet your Faculty Leaders and your group in your Homeroom. Here you'll receive your name badge, Student Handbook, and start your day with a brief presentation!

From your Welcome Session, you will go to each of the following, though not necessarily in this order:

UAlberta 101: The UAlberta presentation focuses on topics such as Wellness, Safety, and Involvement and will help you learn about campus resources and services!

Clubs Fair & Lunch: Take a walk through Clubs Fair to meet representatives from a variety of student groups and jump into involvement the U of A! You are responsible for either bringing your own lunch or buying it!

Campus Tour: Your Faculty Leaders will be taking you on a tour of campus that has been tailored to your faculty! You will visit your faculty office, as well as the Students' Union Building and the Van Vliet Complex.

Presidents' Address: This celebration brings together all new students from across the university! You will have the opportunity to hear from prominent university figures such as the President of the University of Alberta, the President of the University of Alberta Students' Union, the President of the University of Alberta Alumni Association.
