Orientation event to welcome mature and transfer students

The Educational Development Centre will welcome mature students and those transferring from other campuses with a reception especially for them on Thursday, August 22.

“These students may have a little more experience than those who come here directly from high school,” explains organizer Laura Prada. “We recognize they have different needs in adjusting to the University of Windsor and hope to address them.”

Attendees will:

  • receive their UWinCARDs;
  • sign up for their UWin email accounts;
  • learn about UWindsor classroom technology;
  • discover campus services available to them; and
  • get to know the differences between their previous experiences and UWindsor.

They will also have an opportunity to hear from to upper-year part-time and transfer students, as well as some who entered directly from high school, about their experiences.

The event runs 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Vanier Hall’s Winclare A. Register in advance at: www.uwindsor.ca/augustorientation.
