Orientation is hosted by the college and Frosh Week is hosted by Conestoga Students Inc. (CSI), the official student association for the college.
Orientation is the main event for first-year students. It is comprised of free events, with a mix of optional and mandatory activities, including: information webinars, Campus Welcome Drop-in, and a mandatory Online Academic Orientation Session. It is the time for new students to get aquainted with the resources and services available, learn vital information about academic success, and get a sense of the Conestoga College community. You will learn essential information about college life and set the foundation for a successful journey at Conestoga College.
Frosh Week is organized to welcome new students to Conestoga College through community-building and social activities. Some events might include a fee.
Your Online Academic Orientation Session will be recorded. Your instructor will post the recorded video to eConestoga before the third week of classes.
