MyStart: Orientation is the university's largest transition program specifically geared toward students who are beginning classes in September. Fall Orientation activities provide fun and exciting opportunities for all incoming students in the university's diverse student population. MyStart: Orientation is not only a great way to make new friends prior to starting classes, but it also allows students the opportunity to explore campus and learn about the university's vibrant campus culture.

What to Expect

  • Learn about the university experiences of upper-year students and peer leaders.
  • Learn how to get the most out of the university experience.
  • Meet your Peer Leader, make new friends, connect with faculty and staff.
  • Participate in two days of engaging campus activities and traditions unique to the university.

Peer Leader Program

All first-year and new incoming students are matched with a Peer Leader, who is an upper-year student mentor from your program or faculty. These leaders are trained to provide students with a variety of strategies and referrals that can assist with the social, cultural, and academic transition into university. To learn more about the Peer Leader program, visit the transition website.
