Orientation Sept. 4 at North Island College's Comox Valley campus

North Island College is rolling out the welcome mat on Tuesday with a variety of informative student activities during Orientation Day at the Comox Valley campus in Courtenay.

Classes have been cancelled to make way for a full day of helpful and fun events, beginning at 9 a.m.

The day will get underway with a welcome from college staff, followed by program overviews from your faculty and instructors.

Students will also have time to tour the campus, visit the library, pay tuition fees, or participate in a game of volleyball or bocci.

A complimentary barbecue lunch will be served beginning at noon with DJ All Good and an opportunity to learn more about what amenities are available to students in the community. Over 20 confirmed participants include Shaw, Rogers, VI Fitness, Mount Washington, Comox Valley Sports and Social Club, and many more.

In the afternoon, students can attend short workshops on getting involved in the Students’ Union, writing successful essays and study skills.

Orientation Day is often a student’s first introduction to the people, places and resources on campus that will make their first year a success.

You can locate your classrooms, meet your instructors, and visit the library and bookstore. Returning students can reconnect with classmates and instructors, buy course materials, and find out what’s new at NIC.

Thanks to the support of the North Island Students’ Union, Monk Office, Home Depot, and the Comox Valley Regional District, this year’s Orientation Day is shaping up to be another huge success. It all happens Sept. 4.
