Orientation is an important time of transition for more than 9,000 new students arriving on campus. That’s why the University of Waterloo is delivering even more customized Orientation activities to meet the varied needs for our diverse group of students, including:
“This year, with our increased number of incoming international students, International Undergraduate Orientation and other customized programming for students demonstrates the University’s commitment to giving our students useful tools, helpful resources and a meaningful experience at Orientation. Together with the Federation of Students, Graduate Student Association, Faculties, and other key campus partners we look forward to welcoming all new students to the University of Waterloo community.”
Pam Charbonneau, director of the Student Success Office
All new first-year undergraduate students will come together for some new and returning features s as part of Orientation this year including:
“This year, we’ve partnered with Wilfrid Laurier University and the City of Waterloo for WaterlooFest, a community-wide celebration to welcome first-year students to the University of Waterloo and the community they’ll call home for the next few years.”
Antonio Brieva, President, Federation of Students
