What to expect
The New Student Welcome is a free program hosted by the Aboriginal Students' Centre in late August for new Métis, First Nations and Inuit students. It’s a great way to get familiar with campus and meet new people before classes start in September.
During the event, new Indigenous students will:
- get introduced to USask—its purpose, culture, history and the people within our community;
- learn how to access centralized and college-based support services;
- connect with the ASC and other new students in order to create a greater sense of connectedness and community for their first year;
When registering use your USask issued NSID (eg. abc123) as an access code.
Get familiar with the USask campus and meet new people, including fellow students, academic advisors, instructors and USask leadership.
There is no cost to attend.
