New this year: Join us for Faculty Fridays!

Faculty Fridays are faculty-specific orientation days focused on supporting you in your academic transition into university life. Get to know your faculty supports, meet other first year students from your program, and learn more about what to expect when classes begin in the fall.  

What's included: 

  • Meet first year students from your program/faculty 
  • Learn from upper-year student leaders 
  • Meet your faculty-specific supports (including Academic Advisors and Associate Deans) 
  • Learn what to expect as a first-year student in your faculty 
  • Become acquainted with Western's campus 
  • ...and more! 

Registration will open in early June. Capacity is limited.
