New students and their families are invited to “Explore, Discover, Get Involved and Ease Their Minds” at EDGE 2013.
Participants will visit Lakehead’s residence, meet upper-year students, faculty and staff, and take part in programming at this two-day orientation.
THUNDER BAY – EDGE will occur Thursday, July 4 and Friday, July 5 on the Thunder Bay campus.
“EDGE is the perfect opportunity for students and family members to explore our beautiful campus, discover what Lakehead has to offer, and participate in activities designed to ease the transition to university,” said Lakehead President and Vice-Chancellor, Dr. Brian Stevenson.

“Orientation activities increase a student’s chance of succeeding at university,” said Heather Doyle, Director, Student Success Centre. “EDGE is held in the summer to help new students become accustomed to campus and answer questions they may have before beginning their journey in September. Students and their families are encouraged to stay overnight in residence to gain the full experience.”
EDGE runs Thursday, July 4 from 8:30 am until the evening and Friday, July 5 from 8 am – 12:30 pm (with optional afternoon activities).
