Your guide to student-led orientation events at Concordia
Concordia’s official orientation events, such as Discover Concordia and Start Right, are just a few of the many ways that students can ring in the new school year. Student associations also host their own activities, both on and off campus.
With so many student groups hosting their own welcome events, it can be hard to keep track of everything.
Luckily, Concordia’s Student Success Centre has a new orientation page to help you explore the full list of student-led orientation and frosh activities.
Here’s an overview of what’s on the docket. Follow these Facebook pages for the latest regarding dates, events and activities.
