Student Orientation at York consists of two parts: York Orientation Day (which includes Bethune's Academic Orientation and is mandatory), and Social Orientation (a.k.a. Frosh Week) which is optional.

York Orientation Day/Academic Orientation

We want you to have a smooth transition to university life; therefore we have planned this orientation to help you succeed at York. We will introduce you to the academic services, social activities, recreational activities and facilities available to you, both at Bethune College and throughout the University. We want to help you make connections. We want you to feel at home.

When/Where:  Tuesday Sept 8 from 9 am to noon via Zoom.


You can register once you've  created your Passport York account.
