North Island College is rolling out the welcome mat on Tuesday with a variety of informative activities for students attending the Comox Valley campus this fall.

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

The day will start with a welcome from college staff, followed by program overviews from 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 beginning at 11:30 a.m. with DJ Shayd will include 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 CIBC. 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.

For complete event details, visit www.nic.bc.ca. Classes will begin Wednesday.
