Orientation, matriculation, events, activities and more for students

Student Life

By Memorial University

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.

Get involved

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.

For fall welcome at Grenfell Campus, visit here. For the Marine Institute, visit here.

MUN 101

MUN 101 is Memorial’s early orientation and transition program delivered online to help first-year undergraduate students prepare for university life, become involved in the community and get set for success.

This course is delivered in Brightspace, Memorial’s learning management system, and contains information and resources to support student success, academically and non-academically.

All new undergraduate students are automatically enrolled in MUN 101. Find out more about how to access MUN 101.

Academic matriculation

Academic matriculation is a ceremony to officially enter new students into university to complete a degree program.

It is a formal welcome at Memorial, celebrating the beginning of the student journey at university — a bookend of sorts to convocation.

For fall 2022, academic matriculation will be delivered in a hybrid format (virtual with limited in-person attendance) on Tuesday, Sept. 6 at 5 p.m.

Fairs and expos

Experience all Memorial offers from student supports and services, academic advice, health and wellness, clubs and societies, volunteer opportunities and much more.
