Incoming students are being introduced to university life during Orientation Week – Sept. 3-8 – as well as to some traditions that make Queen’s a unique place.

Wednesday marked the transition from University Orientation to Faculty Orientation, where first-year students connect with their peers and colleagues from the same programs.
