Welcome Week 

The International Student Services Office organizes orientation activities in the beginning of each term (September for the Fall Term, January for the Winter Term and May for the Summer term).

The welcome week sessions will help you get introduced to the Saint John campus and services for you. You will meet our current students, who will be showing you around and helping you with various practical tasks.

There are also social activities to help you meet other students (new and current, domestic and international).
