Extended Orientation

The Extended Orientation is an integral component of the overall orientation programme of the College. While the purpose of the College Orientation Camp is to create a welcoming environment that fosters a sense of community among the incoming students and connects them to teachers, staff and other students, the Extended Orientation is to introduce and reinforce the many resources and support made available to students that will help them make informed choices and appropriate educational plans during their four years at university. Specifically, College will present a guiding framework for a fruitful, meaningful and enjoyable College life and academic learning through the communication of expectations and norms. The main goal then is to ensure enough guidance and support are provided for a smooth transition to university life.

The Extended Orientation is organized as a series of sessions in the first few weeks of Term 1 and covering various essential topics.  It is part of the College’s non-credit bearing GE programme.  A grade of satisfactory attendance (PP) will be logged on the transcripts upon completion.

A total of three sessions of the Extended Orientation will be arranged:
