New International Student Orientation
Please note that we offer a few services before Orientation starts:
THE WELCOME CENTRE
The Welcome Centre is there help you settle in before Orientation begins. It will be located on the main floor at Regent College in the Atrium and be open from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, from Monday, August 21 until Friday, August 25th and Monday, August 31 . Please feel free to drop by. We will enjoy meeting you and helping you with any questions you might have.
GIFTS FOR NEW STUDENTS
Every year staff, faculty, friends and exiting students of Regent College give away good quality household items as a way to bless incoming students as they begin their time in Vancouver. Everything is free!
If you need household goods, small furniture or children's items you are welcome to come past and take what you may need. Gifts for New Students will be open between Monday, August 21 to Friday, September 1.
Our New Student Orientation program is intentionally designed to help you make a smooth and successful transition into life of the Regent College community. Students find Orientation very beneficial in gaining opportunities for worship; an introduction to the history, mission and values of Regent and practical information for personal and academic success as they begin their studies. It is also a valuable time to meet the faculty and connect with other students. Indeed, students often form their most important friendships at Regent during Orientation. Please plan on attending (even if you are local) and bring your spouse and family!
