Cambrian College Prepares for New School Year

Posted on Wednesday August 30, 2023

Cambrian College is getting ready for the traditional start of another academic year. Orientation Week begins with Move-in Weekend in Residence.

SUDBURY – Officially, there are still days left in the summer, but Cambrian College is looking ahead to the start of the fall semester.

Students, faculty and employees are getting ready for the start of classes in September at northeastern Ontario’s largest college.

“To say I am excited is an understatement,” says Cambrian President Kristine Morrissey. “This will be my first fall orientation as president, and I cannot wait to welcome new and returning students to what is guaranteed to be a week packed with activities, events and a whole lot of fun.”

Fall Orientation is taking place from August 30 to September 8.

Students will learn what services are available on campus and in the community, meet college staff and faculty, and socialize with their fellow students. For international students, it is also an opportunity to set up necessary services for living in Canada, such as banking, health care and children’s services. The week also features free food and prizes.

Events during Fall Orientation include:

  • International Student In-person Orientation, August 30
  • Community Services Fair, August 31
  • Virtual “Ask Me” Desk, August 28-September 8
  • In-person “Ask Me” Desk, September 5-8
  • Meet & Greet Carnival, September 6
  • Student Services Fair, September 7

“We are a 12-month college now, but for most of our students, September marks the traditional start of their school year, so we like to bring a lot of energy to the start of the fall term,” adds Morrissey. “It is great to have our halls filled with students, staff and faculty. One of our strongest features is the community atmosphere we have created here at Cambrian. We believe that the on-campus experience is so important to the culture we’ve created here, which is why start-up is so important to set the tone for the year.”
