The University's Orientation program is designed to smooth the transition to university and residence life, as well as to welcome you to the Western community.
The university administration, the University Student's Council and the Division of Housing and Ancillary Services, together with students, staff and faculty, work to provide fun social and learning experiences throughout the week. Campus-wide events planned by the University Students' Council include a faculty orientation day, outdoor events and concerts. You will also have the opportunity to participate in activities organized by the residents' council at your own residence. These activities are designed to help you adjust to university life and to get to know your new campus community.
Please be aware that your name, room number and faculty will be used to assign you to groups for orientation activities and to invite you to programs and events related to your academic program throughout the year. You may choose to opt out of the contact list at any time by contacting email@example.com.
