It’s a different start to the semester

CUE welcomes you to start your university year off with our virtual student orientation! You will learn all about what you can expect for the semester including the practical, academic, and student life opportunities and supports available.

This year, the Fall 2020 Student Orientation is available to all new and returning CUE students.

Begin building a network of familiar faces, virtually. CUE staff, faculty and students will be available to answer your questions and help you get ready for those exciting first days. 

More information will be available on our online Orientation Moodle Course, which will remain accessible to you at all times.

Mark your calendars!

We’re going LIVE online on Thursday, August 27, 2020 at 9:00am. Keep scrolling for the schedule.

New students

For new students starting at CUE this semester, Student Orientation is mandatory. You are required to register for the sessions that apply to you (eg. if you are not interested in studying abroad, or you are not an international student, the International Office session does not apply to you).

Once you have registered, you will be sent a virtual link for the day. This link will give you access to all sessions that are happening Thursday August 27th, 2020.

Orientation etiquette

When you log in please ensure your microphone is turned off as there will be many students attending these sessions.

Many of our session will have a question period. Please use the chat function primarily for questions unless specified by the lead.

See you all there!
