Welcome to King's! We're so glad you've made the decision to attend one of Canada's top Christian universities. Whether you're starting university for the first time or transferring from another institution, Orientation prepares you for your time as a student at King's. Get to know your Orientation team beforehand here. If you're a parent, learn more about the parent orientation program.
In short, here are three fantastic reasons to attend Orientation:
- You'll be introduced to services, technology, and resources available on campus, providing you with a smooth transition into university at King's.
- It will connect you with new people--be they new friends, professors, or campus support staff.
- It will prepare you for success inside and outside the classroom
Day 1: The first day of Orientation takes you from a warm welcome from King's president to a pizza supper filled with sessions that help you get to know King's campus and its community a little better. Take a tour, learn about faith on campus, or get to know new friends in the residence or commuter student group sessions!
Day 2: The second day of Orientation is focused on service learning. In the past, King's has partnered with the City of Edmonton's Roots for Trees and River Valley Clean-Up programs. After spending time working side-by-side with your friends and a free lunch, you will head back to campus to form connections with local churches.
