Brescia's orientatation offers a variety of programming that will help you as you build new friendships, get acquainted with campus, explore the experiences and opportunities available at Brescia/Western, and prepare for your courses. To ensure the safety of our incoming students and the greater Brescia community during this time, we have made the decision to build a primarily virtual New Student Orientation experience.
To house this virtual programming, Brescia has built a New Student Orientation Portal that will be made available to all incoming students. You will access this portal through OWL, Western's learning management system, using your Western login credentials. Consider it the hub for all of Brescia's orientation and transition programming!
For those incoming students who are not living in residence, such as off-campus, international, & out-of-province students: All orientation programming will be accessed via our virtual New Student Orientation Portal.
For those living in residence: Orientation programming will be blended, with in-person events offered only when physical distancing practices can be maintained.
