Welcome Day for Indigenous Students  Friday, August 30, 2019

To help start a new adventure and academic career at Queen’s University, the Four Directions Indigenous Student Centre (FDISC), offers the first year, and transfer Indigenous students the opportunity to move-in to residences one day ea[image of volunteers helping news students]rly.

This event is held specifically to welcome our incoming Indigenous students and introduce them to FDISC, our staff and the resources available to them during their stay at Queen’s! An entire day of orientation and social activities are planned with the Indigenous students and their families.

The ‘Welcome Day’ is intended to allow our incoming students a chance to meet other Indigenous students, tour the Queen’s campus and downtown Kingston!  This not only presents the opportunity to beat the rush of the 4,000+ incoming students but it also sets the stage of creating community with the Indigenous staff, faculty and students.

We are charging $30 per family to assist in covering costs of meals, programming and residence rooms. Please mail a cheque to Four Directions Indigenous Student Centre, 146 Barrie St. Kingston, ON K7L 3N6 OR bring money with you the day of.

Please note: if you are not moving into residence, we welcome you to participate and join us this day for all of the orientation programming.
