Each year, students express appreciation for the way Orientation helps them settle into life and studies at Regent.
Attendance at Orientation is expected of all new students—it is intentionally designed to help you make a smooth transition into the life of the Regent College community. The program includes practical information for personal and academic success; opportunities for worship and prayer; and an introduction to Regent's history, mission, and values.
Orientation is also a great time to meet Regent's faculty and begin connecting with other new and current students. Many alumni have told us that they formed their most important friendships at Regent during New Student Orientation. Please plan to join us, even if you are a local. Spouses are also encouraged to participate.

Other Welcome Activities
Recognizing that orientation at Regent takes more than a few days, a variety of activities during the first term to welcome and integrate our new students. This includes our first Chapel, the Fall Retreat (September 22–24), new student lunches, and RCSA community events. Find more information on our Worship and Community page in the Current Students section.
Connect with a current student
Are you looking to connect with a current student about life in Vancouver and studying at Regent? Contact the Associate Dean of Students and we’ll try to connect you with someone in a similar life situation (i.e., similar life stage, vocational background, etc.).
