Wilfrid Laurier University will be welcoming the 2020 cohort of first-year undergraduate students with a series of virtual Orientation events, organized by Laurier’s Students’ Union, which will be held Aug. 31 to Sept. 4 and Sept. 8 to 11. 

Orientation will be offered virtually this year and has been extended from one week to two, with events and programs designed to help students meet new people, make friends and learn more about university life.

"Orientation is filled with activities and events to help integrate incoming students into the Laurier community," said Adam Lawrence, dean of students for the Brantford campus. "We know how different this year may feel for many students, but the Students’ Union, Student Affairs staff, faculty members and senior student volunteers have been working extremely hard to create an incredible program of events and social connections to help prepare students for academic and personal success in the coming year."

Events include exercise classes, a multi-day interactive online game, how-to workshops on topics including tie dye and sign language, trivia, bingo, open-mic night, mentalist show, paint night, escape room and a concert.
