Winter Orientation for new first semester students at the Sutherland Campus will be held Monday, January 9th.   First semester students will be following orientation schedules on the first day of school.  Regular academic timetables for all new students will begin on Tuesday, January 10th.

Please refer to the schedules that can be found through the link on the portal main page. You can also find the link to the January social calendar of events for the Frost and Sutherland campuses.

Here are a few highlights for your review regarding Orientation on Monday, January 9th:

  • All staff and students are invited to join us at 1:00 pm in the main foyer for cake to commemorate Sir Sandford Fleming’s birthday, who was born on January 7th, 1827
  • There will be an ‘Ask Me’ desk set up in the main foyer between 8:30 am – 3:00 pm to answer any Orientation inquiries. Orientation schedules will be also available for pick-up if students did not print or bring their Orientation schedule with them to campus.
  • A number of service departments will be in the main foyer between 12:00 – 3:00 pm providing awareness of their services including, but not limited to Athletics and Recreation, Career Services, Student Life, International Student Services, Residence, Food @ Fleming, Student Administrative Council (SAC), Library Services, Tutoring and Academic Skills and the Office of Sustainability
  • Student volunteers will be present in various locations to welcome our new students and help direct them to various departments and session locations.

A reminder that unlike fall orientation, upper semester students are scheduled for classes on day one unless otherwise notified by their faculty or program coordinator. New first semester students are expected to follow their Orientation schedule.
