Our Orientation programs are designed to help you find your way around campus, provide an introduction to your studies and put you in touch with the staff within your area of study, other students and all the university services available to you. Orientation is about becoming familiar with your surroundings and knowing where to go for assistance, should you need it. Put simply, if you miss out on orientation you will be missing out on essential information and lots of fun!
