Student Victoria Johnson vividly remembers her first Orientation Day at the University of Regina.

"It was very overwhelming at first but it felt great to see everyone in one place,” says Johnson. “I could feel the energy in the gym. By the end of the day we were laughing, having fun and I felt a lot more at ease.”

That was five years ago. This year, Johnson is the Student Orientation Coordinator. She’s entering her final semester in Business.

As part of her job, she reminds all new students to register for Fall Orientation 2015, September 8. Fall Orientation gives you the knowledge of the campus, your faculty, and how to make the best out of your time pursuing your degree.

The day is packed full of learning and fun, which includes; a welcome session where you feel a sense of pride being part of the University of Regina; an opportunity to connect with your faculty; informative sessions designed to ease transition to university; an inspirational guest speaker and an excursion to the Southland Mall for food and a movie.

Orientation Day is followed by Welcome Week, Sept 9 – 11. The orientation programs are designed for undergraduate and graduate students, mature and transfer students. Also offered are parent and family orientation sessions.

“We’re expecting around 1500 students and we will give them a very big welcome,” says Johnson.
