Orientation 2012

Some of the School's Faculty & Staff

Congratulations and welcome to the School of Social Work at Memorial University!

We will be holding a fun and informative Orientation Day for you on September 4, 2012. It will be held at St. John's College where The School of Social Work is located and will begin at 8:30 am and continue until 3:30 pm. We will be starting registration in Room J 2008. Our faculty, staff, and students will be there to welcome and direct you.

Throughout the day there will be activities, information sessions, and also snacks and a lunch. Since we are providing food we would like you to inform us of any allergies, dietary requirements, or special needs if you have them.

One of the activities we have planned is a discussion group in which you will get to interact with faculty and senior students. For this we would like you to read a short article before attending orientation so that you are able to contribute to the discussion. This article will be sent to you via email within the next two weeks.

Come prepared to have your picture taken because we will incorporate them into a class composite.

Please be aware that Memorial University has a SCENT FREE policy, and that the School of Social Work is a NUT FREE zone as we have a person who has an anaphylactic reaction to all nuts.

Please note that this Orientation event is mandatory. If you have any questions feel free to contact Stephanie Power at or Robbie Butt at

We look forward to meeting you and welcoming you as the newest addition to the School of Social Work. See you on September 4th!
