WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
New Student Orientation
New Student Orientation is a two-day program that introduces new students to the academic, social and cultural life at uLethbridge. Each session and event at NSO is designed to help students connect to uLethbridge’s community of students, faculty and support services. On day one of NSO, all new students and their family member(s) are welcome and on day two, the focus is new students only.
What is the agenda for the day?
Check out the itinerary for a complete list of activities.
Does it cost anything to attend New Student Orientation (NSO)?
No! Students and their family can attend NSO free of charge. We only ask you come ready for fun and informative sessions that will prepare students for their future endeavors.
Is New Student Orientation mandatory?
New Student Orientation is not mandatory at the University of Lethbridge; however, we highly recommend joining us on both days to gather important information from various service areas and faculties throughout uLethbridge.
Are there orientations for graduate students? International students? Transfer students? FNMI students?
While each respective area may offer their own version of orientation, we have worked hard with each area to offer programming for all of our new students within the 2-day NSO event on top of their own specific programming. Orientation activities that are specific to certain groups of students will be communicated via FNMI student services, the School of Graduate Studies and the International Centre.
Can I bring someone to the event?
Yes! We encourage students to bring a family member with them on the first day as we will have information sessions that they may find valuable. However, please note that family programming is not slated for the Tuesday, as there is an academic focus for students.
Where do I park at uLethbridge?
When you arrive on campus there will be signs directing you to the correct parking lot.
What’s happening at lunch time?
On Monday, September 4th, lunch will be provided for everyone at the event. If you have any dietary restrictions please let us know when you register for the event. On Tuesday, September 5th, we will not be providing lunch; however, this is a great opportunity to check out various food vendors we have on campus!
Will services on campus be open for NSO?
Many services will not be available on Monday, September 4th, as it is a holiday. Business as usual will commence on Tuesday, September 5th.
