York Orientation Day/Academic Orientation 2019

Tuesday, September 3, from 1:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Academic Orientation introduces new students in the School of the Arts, Media, Performance and Design (AMPD) and in BA Education Studies from the Faculty of Education to academic life at York University.

This session will provide incoming students with important information that will ensure their transition into York University happens smoothly. It will introduce students to academic services, social, recreational and athletic activities, and facilities available to them at Winters College, in their faculty and throughout the university. We want our students to feel comfortable here, and to make their time spent at York University memorable.
