New Student Orientation


We have a lot planned to make sure you feel welcomed and supported during your first week on campus. Here’s just a sample of what we have planned.


Residence Move-In

Friday, August 30 and Saturday, August 31

Moving into residence and need a little extra help? Cambrian is here to make it fun and easy. During our move-in days we’ll have games for you to play, a BBQ lunch for you to enjoy, and an energetic team ready to make the entire move-in process easy from beginning to end.


Orientation Day

Tuesday, September 3

Your academic journey will kick-off with a fun-filled Orientation Day on September 3. We’re excited for your first day, and to make it special we’ve planned some activities that will have you meeting your program coordinator, cheering alongside your classmates, and having the chance to win a cool $2,500 scholarship.  All students are expected to attend Orientation Day, as you will be provided with important program-specific information to better prepare you for the school year ahead.

Pep Rally

Show your school spirit and unite with other first-year students. The group with the most school spirit will win the ugly trophy and bragging rights for the year.

Prize Draw

During the Pep Rally, we’ll be giving away a $2,500 scholarship – but you have to be there to win! Extra money in your pocket would be a great way to start your school year.

Log in to your myCambrian account for your program-specific Orientation Day schedule. You will follow your Orientation Day schedule, NOT your academic timetable on September 3. On Wednesday, September 4, you will follow your academic timetable.
