Get oriented at Douglas

Starting the first semester in college can be a stressful experience for new students. Fortunately, Douglas College’s Late Summer Orientation is on the way to help you get settled into college life.

“Our full-day LSO events give students the information, connections and confidence they need to hit the ground running in September,” said Eric Glanville, Student Development Coordinator with the Office for New Students. “By the end of the day, students will make new friends, buy texbooks before September rush, learn how to access key services, connect with faculty, get involved in student clubs and activities and much more. And they may even win some exciting prizes at the closing ceremony!"

At Late Summer Orientation you can:

  • Buy texbooks

  • Meet instructors and learn about college classes

  • Get Student ID cards

  • Get a campus tour and learn about student services

  • Sign up for student clubs and activities

  • Understand important dates and privacy issues

  • Make friends with future classmates

  • Win great prizes, including a Sony PSP!

    Late summer orientation sessions run from 9am to 3:30pm on Wednesday, August 18 and Saturday, August 21 at the David Lam Campus in Coquitlam and Wednesday, August 25 and Saturday, August 28 at the New Westminster Campus.
