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. These two days of programing will encourage you to step out of your comfort zone while providing you with the tools to be successful. Orientation is an exciting way to kick off your time at MRU, with campus-wide tours, interactive experiences and helpful workshops to set you up for success. Join us Sept. 6 and 7 to begin your legacy alongside over 2,000 new and existing MRU students.
