THUNDER BAY – LIVING – It’s not too late to apply to Lakehead University – applications will be accepted for most programs until the first week of September.
If you are accepted, the Thunderwolves Howl! Fall Orientation will welcome you and other new students to Lakehead University and introduce you to the Thunder Bay campus. Orientation will run from Wednesday, Aug. 29 until Saturday, Sept. 1, and will focus on helping students successfully transition to Lakehead University.
“Students will definitely enjoy the Quest for the President’s Cup, which offers students a chance to explore campus, learn about the supports and services, get to know each other, and win prizes donated by local businesses,” said Jo Krisko, Manager of the Student Success Centre.
“All of Lakehead’s Orientation events offer a chance for new students to be introduced and connected to the Lakehead and Thunder Bay communities, as well as familiarize themselves with resources that will help them transition to university life,” she added.
Events and activities will cater to students entering from high school, college/university transfer, as well as international, Aboriginal and mature students.
“These events will ensure students have a positive introduction to Lakehead and start the year prepared and excited for this new academic adventure,” said Chris Glover, Director of Student Affairs. “Our programming engages students in the University experience and helps them to develop a sense of belonging at Lakehead.”
The Student Success Centre, Residence & Conference Services, and the Lakehead University Student Union are organizing the Thunderwolves Howl!Orientation.
