Students play a beanbag toss game during orientation.Planning a social activity for UWindsor Welcome Week? Submit an event information form to the orientation organizing committee.

Organizers must register welcome week social activities

With a goal of easing the transition of first-year undergraduate students to campus life and post-secondary studies, orientation activities planned for UWindsor Welcome Week will align with the values set out in the University’s strategic plan, says Amber Norman.

Student development specialist in the Student Success and Leadership Centre, she is hoping events from Sept. 3 to 9 will foster a connection among newcomers and upper-year students.

“Doing so will help to develop their sense of belonging inside their new learning community, which will translate into better retention and educational outcomes over the long term,” Norman says.

The organizing committee requires anyone — campus partners, clubs, societies, or faculty — planning to host a social activity during UWindsor Welcome Week to submit an event information form for it to be included in schedule and promotional materials. The forms are due no later than Wednesday, June 28.
