Orientation Week

Orientation Week (O-Week) 2024 will take place from Friday August 30th to Sunday September 8th. O-Week events are posted on and the I Am A Gryphon App.

Are you a new student?

Orientation Week is a week you don't want to miss! Whether you’re living off-campus or in residence, your weekend will kick off on Saturday, August 31st with community socials, dinner, and the opening welcome hosted by Student Experience & Student Affairs.  

Throughout Orientation Week there will be over 250 events run by student clubs and departments across campus. Events include everything from small close-knit socials to the large Pep Rally. With so many campus members involved in running events in O-Week we promise you’ll find events that will help you meet other Gryphons, get involved with something that interests you, and learn more about your program. 

If you haven’t done so yet, make sure you start thinking about what you want from your Orientation Week and plan travel/work accordingly so you can be here every day.
