When and where does Early Summer Orientation take place?
David Lam Campus (Coquitlam) - June 8 from 6-9:30pm
New Westminster Campus - June 9 from 6-9:30pm


Why should I come to orientation?
Orientation is your first College Party! Seriously, think about why you go to a party or an event. You go to meet people, learn more about an event or place, get settled and find out any information you may need. Just like orientation! This is your first chance to meet your classmates, learn about the services at the college, important dates and deadlines, meet the staff, get a tour of the campus, and more!

What will we do?
Good question! If you go to the Orientation website you will find a schedule of events.

Will I be bored?
What is this "bored" you speak of? I am not familiar with that concept, maybe you didn't read question #1...PARTY...

Will it cost me money?
No. Completely free.

Can my parents come?
Yes! In fact, they are welcome - we have a schedule of events for them so they won't even be bothering you. We will give them information that will help them support you as you start college.

But do they have to come?
No, but we like it when they do...

Do I have to sign up in advance?
Yes please, we use the registration to get an idea how much food to order! You can register on the Orientation website

Is this my only chance to attend orientation before September?
Nope, we have four more events in August (check out the Orientation website for more details)
