Orientation for International Students
This is a special one-day orientation specifically designed for international students. We encourage you to attend this session, in addition to the orientation for all new students on September 4-6, 2012.
Please note that we offer a few services before Orientation starts:
The Welcome Centre
The Welcome Centre purpose is to help you settle in before Orientation starts. It will be located on the main floor at Regent College in the Atrium and be open from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm, from Wednesday, August 22 until Friday, September 7. Please feel free to drop by. We will enjoy meeting you, having a cup of tea or coffee with you and helping you with any questions you might have.
We are hosting a Household Giveaway from Wednesday, August 22 to Friday, September 14 in Room 010, which is located next to Student Services, on the lower level of Regent College. This is meant to be beneficial to all who are starting a new home in Vancouver. If you need household goods, small furniture, or children's items come by—everything is free!
The Orientation Program is designed to help you make a smooth and successful transition into the Regent College community. These days will be very beneficial to your Regent College experience and will introduce you to the history, mission and values of this place. You will also form some of the most important relationships for your time in Vancouver. Please plan on attending and bring your spouse and family!
