Student Orientation at York consists of two parts: York Orientation Day (which includes Founders College Academic Orientation) and Social Orientation (a.k.a. Frosh Week).
York Orientation Day / Academic Orientation
Wednesday, September 6, 2017 | 1:00pm to 8:00pm | CLH L*
During Orientation, you will be introduced to the tools you need to excel in your studies at York. Orientation events are designed to help you make a smooth transition to university life. You will be introduced to your program of study and the academic services, social and recreational activities and other facilities available to you, both at Founders and throughout the university. We will help you make connections.
* Curtis Lecture Hall is building #26 on the campus map.
