Welcome Week

The first few days of each new semester are designed to help new students acclimatize to university life and to welcome back our returning students. Students have opportunities to tour the campus, complete paperwork, finalize payments, get a student photo taken, receive a library card, and gain access to the fitness centre. Students may also learn more about and sign up for performing arts or athletic opportunities on campus.

Orientation Forms

Below are links to the orientation forms you’ll need to fill out and complete.

COVID-19 Safeguards

Our Welcome Week committee is carefully planning every activity to follow current government COVID-19 guidelines. That is why we’ve put the following in place:

  1. Staggered arrival of students - New students will arrive and start the registration line at different times. Returning students are scheduled to arrive earlier and participate in their own academic orientation sessions.
  2. There will be a limit of one extra person to accompany each student through the registration line in the Hanna Center. If you’re bringing help to move in, please bring a maximum of two people.
  3. Currently, provincial regulations require everyone to wear a face masks to in the indoor space during registration and check-in on the first day. We will have extra masks on hand if you forget yours.

Play with your House or cheer them on as teams compete for the legendary Prov Cup! The Fall Welcome Week will also feature chapels, bonfires, a banquet, community BBQ and a free concert.

Before classes start, students will participate in academic orientation (mandatory for all new students) which is a great way to learn about Providence, meet faculty and staff, and be well equipped for your academic studies. The University College and Seminary orientations will be held separately on Tuesday September 7.

All Seminary students and faculty are invited to join together in the fall semester to connect with God and with one another. The day includes a fantastic teaching and story sharing time, refreshing worship, quiet reflection, and of course, space to connect with your Seminary peers! To RSVP, please fill out our Seminary Fall Retreat Registration Form.
