Welcome Week

The first few days of our new school year 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.

COVID-19 Safeguards

This year (2020), our Welcome Week will be held on September 4 to 11. Check out the schedule!

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

  1. Staggered arrival of students - New students will arrive on September 4th and start the "funnel" or registration line at different times. Returning students are scheduled to arrive two days later on the 6th 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. We’ll provide face masks to wear in the indoor space during registration and check-in on the first day.

Fun and Games

Come and compete in the 'Capture the Flag' event and participate in a fun and active game of 'Archery Tag!' Welcome Week 2020 will also feature chapels, bonfires, a pizza party, community BBQ and free concert with Winnipeg band 'Bold as Lions.'

Orientation

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.

Seminary Retreat

All Seminary students are invited for a day of teaching and story sharing time, refreshing worship, quiet reflection, and of course, space for fun and connecting with your Seminary peers! Due to COVID-19 restrictions, this RETREAT IS CANCELLED for Fall 2020.
