In your introduction to Brescia, we will familiarize your with campus, help you build new friendships, and prepare you for the transition to life as a student at Canada's only women's university. New Student Orientation is specifically designed with initiatives and information to help you thrive as a new student at Brescia, beyond orientation and across your entire first year on our campus. Your Brescia journey is yours to create and we’re here to help get you started!
Discover the events and activities you will be participating in during your New Student Orientation!
To help you kick off your studies and join Brescia's community, you will be welcomed by enthusiastic, friendly, and helpful student leaders called ‘Sophs’.
There are key events created to support and engage our incoming off-campus student community.
At Brescia, incoming international students have an opportunity to participate in Bridging Week before New Student Orientation begins. This is your opportunity to explore a new culture and transition into university life.
During this fun-filled day you will have the opportunity to explore campus, learn about the resources available to support you in your transition, and start building friendships that will last a lifetime.
Within the Orientation Program there are a number of student leader positions available both here at Brescia and at Western. Discover how you will Choose to Lead!
You have questions, we have the answers! These are our incoming students most frequently asked questions.
