New Student Orientation


Fall Orientation 2016

Fall Orientation is designed to support your transition to Mount Royal University by providing academic resources, services and interpersonal development opportunities. The two days of programing will encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and Get Comfortable With Being Uncomfortable.  You will hear from President Dr. David Docherty, Provost Dr. Kathy Shailer and other administration who will welcome you to this incredible place. Your fantastic student leaders will provide you with a detailed campus tour and answer any questions you may have. Orientation is an important first step to attending university and will provide you with tools to be successful.

Students that attended the most recent Winter orientation had the following to say about their experience:

"It has showed me that MRU is a student oriented university and provides many useful resources to assist students"
"I definitely did not realize the closeness and togetherness & unity MRU has"
"I loved MRU more, I feel more inspired to go to school and study"
"I had high expectations of MRU, and now I know I've made the right decision"
"less terrified of the experience and my first day"
