On Tuesday, Sept. 6,classes begin and Memorial University campuses will once again be filled with activity as new and returning students fill the halls and outdoor spaces. This year is particularly significant as many students will be coming to campus for the first time.
Orientation has always been an important time to welcome students and there are many hands at work to make this year’s fall welcome a success.
This year, fall welcome is filled with in-person and virtual events to help inform, engage and excite students.
Student Life has created a full schedule of activities and events planned for fall 2022, which everyone can follow along with on Student Life’s Facebook and Twitter. The entire events schedule on the Student Life website.
