Student Experience

Niagara College’s Student Experience program, which begins with Orientation Week, is the central hub for events, workshops, seminars and guest speaker series that will assist students with easing the transition into College life.


Orientation Week

Students kick off the school year with a week of Orientation events, hosted by the Centre for Student Engagement and Leadership.

Events vary – everything from free food to free music to contests and prizes – and more! Every Orientation includes program information sessions, which gives students the chance to meet their professors and fellow students in their program.
