Workshops Add New Dimension To Campus Tour During UVic's New Student Orientation Program
New University of Victoria students will learn more about the
campus and how to become connected during this year's New Student
Orientation Program. Students can tailor Orientation to meet their
own needs by selecting two workshops that interest them as part of
their campus tour.
Start the semester off on the right foot! Learn skills that are important for success at University by taking part in a workshop that will cover a selection of skills: time management, note making, problem solving and reading effectively.
GETTING THE SCOOP: WHAT ALL STUDENTS NEED TO KNOW
The relationship between students, professors and teaching assistants (TAs) can be a hard one to decipher. Take part in this interactive session that will help you figure out what your professors or TA's expect of you and what you should expect from them.
DOLLARS & SENSE
We're going to talk about money: how to get it and how to keep it! As a student, you'll make plenty of budgeting decisions: how much time to allot to studying or to your family and friends and how you'll spend your money throughout the year. Join us for some useful budgeting tips and the opportunity to improve your financial savvy.
So you think being at university is just about studying and getting good grades? Being a student means more than that. Discover the different ways to get involved on campus: from recreation and intramural games, clubs and course unions to student activism. Find out where you can become involved and get connected!
STUDENT EMPLOYMENT: GET A HEAD START!
Need money to help pay the rent or want to gain career-related
experience? Learn about the various services and employment programs
available to you at UVic that will help you get a part time job on or
off campus, a summer job when you need it, explore career options and
develop work search skills needed to succeed in today's labour
