Here’s a sneak peek at our line-up of events for this year’s Residence Orientation:
Queen’s Football Game: See if those rumors that Queen’s is unrivaled in school spirit are true! Paint your face in Queen’s tricolour and join the parade to Richardson Stadium to cheer on your school!
Queen's Reads : This initiative welcomes you to a new community of readers and thinkers at Queen’s! Every new first-year student can receive a copy of The Glass Castle , the New York Times best-selling memoir by Jeanette Walls. Participate on Facebook ( Queen's Student Experience Office ) and Twitter ( @Queens_SEO ) and enter the program's Creative Writing Contest by Friday, August 16, 2013 for a chance to win prizes, including a $500 tuition bursary!
During Residence Orientation, you will participate in book discussion groups facilitated by upper-year students and other community members and engage in lively, interesting, and thoughtful discussion.
MuchMusic Video Dance & Carnival: Bring back the feel of summer with games, cotton candy, and a MuchMusic video dance party all under one roof!
Casino Night: Step out of Kingston and into old school Atlantic City, Boardwalk Empire style! Set in the Roaring Twenties - now you’ll finally have a reason to wear that fedora that’s been sitting in your closet.
Existere: What is it? What does it mean? Find out at this unforgettable event!
Don’t forget to tell your parents and/or guardian about the Parent Information Sessions that are running during Residence Move-In day, Sept 1.
