New Student Orientation


Winter Orientation 2017

Wednesday, Jan. 4
9 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Ross Glen Hall, Roderick Mah Centre for Continuous Learning

Winter Orientation will include important transitional workshops and presentations to help you succeed at Mount Royal University. Students starting at Mount Royal in January often apply for admission into a program in the Fall. Winter Orientation will support you in that transition.
At Orientation, you will meet other new students, hear from student service providers and most importantly develop relationships with senior students. Lunch will be provided as you learn about what to expect at Mount Royal and what you can do to be successful academically and socially during your time on campus.
