Meet fellow students. Tour campus. Learn to navigate those tricky first-year waters.

At MacEwan’s New Student Orientation—held in the fall and the winter each year—you learn about the practical, the academic and the social sides of campus life. You also begin to build a network of familiar faces—and we all know how important that can be when you’re starting something new.

At the orientation, a crew of friendly MacEwan staff and students will answer your questions and help you get ready for those exciting first days on campus.
