New Student Orientation


Fall Orientation 2017

Sept. 5 and 6

Welcome to Mount Royal University!   

Check-in for Orientation will start at 8:30 a.m. on Sept. 5. You will be greeted by your fantastic student leaders, staff and faculty as well as the Mount Royal President and Provost will provide a welcome address.  

Following the formal address, your keynote, Mohamed Fahmy will be with us! Mohamed Fahmy is an award-winning journalist who spent 438 days in an Egyptian prison for allegedly fabricating news. He will share his insights regarding free speech and the ongoing struggle for universal human rights.  


Mount Royal University is located on Treaty 7 land and to acknowledge our many meaningful relationships with our Indigenous neighbours, all new students will participate in an Indigenous Grand Entry procession. This artistic representation of the traditional Grand Entry will represent the beginning of a journey while providing an incredible welcome from our entire community as staff and faculty line the halls to welcome you!


During orientation you will also be provided with both specific program information provided by your faculty as well as the first six weeks presentation is filled with information to get you though the most critical days of your transition. You will also have the opportunity to attend content specific workshops tailored to first year success and our super rad campus carnival!
