Lunch: At this time, you’ll get to take a break from your group meeting or campus tour in order to grab a bite to eat! This year, Subway will be providing a light lunch for all new students.
Group Meetings: Group meetings will provide you with an opportunity to meet other students that you will be with for the day! Your group leader will introduce you to other new students at Memorial and play some fun games with the group!
Campus Tours: During the campus tour, your group leader will help to provide you with an overall knowledge of campus! As a first year, your courses will most likely not all be in the same building, so it’s important to know the various buildings on campus. On the tour, we’ll show you various buildings on campus, the library, and the University Centre!
Welcoming Ceremonies: Welcoming Ceremonies are designed to welcome you to your new home – Memorial University! These ceremonies are full of high profile speakers, who want to pump you up for your time at Memorial, and high energy performers, who are excited that you’ve finally arrived.
PUMP: PUMP stands for People Up Meeting People. Facilitated by Holly White, this event will get you up and moving! You’ll interact with more new students and have fun while doing so! Make sure to dress comfortably, as you'll be up and moving for the hour!
Evaluation and Kits: At the end of the day, you'll get a chance to fill out an evaluation and get a FREE kit full of tons of goodies! These kits contain delicious treats, clipboards, and coupons for more free stuff!
