Faculty of Science Orientation Day is filled with information to help you be prepared for the start of your new degree.

Orientation is our way of welcoming you to the Faculty of Science and making sure you are prepped and ready to start your new degree. You’ll discover all the facilities and support services at the University and have the opportunity to meet other new students.
