Arts 101 Day welcomes incoming students and their families

Tuesday, July 10, 2018

On July 16 Arts welcomes the incoming class of 2018 to Arts 101 Day, an important step in helping new students prepare for the transition to university this fall. 101 Days are hosted by each faculty in partnership with the Student Success Office inviting all new students along with their families to campus.

The Arts 101 experience will offer our incoming students a chance to meet the Arts community, including upper-year students, staff and professors. They will learn about important services and resources available to support them through the transition to university life, and help them plan for a successful year. As well, there will be sessions with success tips, program-specific information, and sample classroom lectures for both PSYCH 101 and Arts First.

Last year, we saw about 350 students as well as their families attend the event — their feedback was very positive about how Arts 101 Day helped them feel well prepared for September.

The full event schedule is available on the 101 Days website — there is a separate student schedule and, further down the page, a parent/family schedule. Much of the Arts 101 student programming will happen in the Hagey Hall Hub, while parent/family programming will happen at Fed Hall. The day will start at 8:30 a.m. in the Hub, and Arts programming will conclude at 2:45 p.m. at which point students can continue and drop-in to services on campus to pick up their WatCards, parking pass, register with AccessAbility Services, drop off their RESP forms, and more.

Beyond having all their questions answered, we hope that after attending Arts 101 Day, our new students feel a sense of belonging with their faculty and the UWaterloo community.
