Huron Orientation Week - The beginning of your university experience

O-Week is here, and we are so excited to meet you! 

Orientation week is a student-led event and one of the most memorable moments in an incoming students university experience where they will meet their classmates, and ultimately, make lifelong friends while learning about everything Huron University College offers in terms of services and our people. From concerts, to team building exercises, this will be a highlight of your post-secondary experience. 

With 400 students stepping onto campus for the first time, Orientation Week is an exciting time and a cornerstone of the student experience at Huron University College. A schedule of the week's events can be found here so you can get prepared for one of the highlights of your post-secondary education experience.
