Undergraduate Student Orientation
Orientation is a great opportunity to learn about your new school from academic, administrative and social perspectives. You'll make new friends as you integrate into campus life and university procedures. You will also get to know about different groups on campus, find out where your classes are, and decide how you want to live your U of A life. We have great presentations, tours and activities lined up for you to learn about all of these things!
Orientation 2015 will take place on Monday August 31st, 2015, so save the date!

BaseCamp: New First Year Lister and CSJ Residents
From August 25 - August 28, with help from your Resident Assistants (RAs), Residence Volunteers (RVs), UAlberta staff members and your new peers, you will start a week-long adventure to help you succeed at University!
By the end of the week, you will have settled into your new home, discovered campus and where your classes will be, bonded with your floormates and made new friends throughout residence, developed a personal and academic support network, and made connections with helpful resources. Our goal is to help you achieve the best University experience possible! Remember: As a first-year student moving into Lister Hall and Residence Saint-Jean, you are automatically included in BaseCamp - you don't have to register separately.
