NAIT students will get a taste of campus life at the polytechnic’s in-person orientation events, August 30 and 31 on NAIT’s Main Campus.
New and returning students will have an opportunity to hear from NAIT leaders and NAITSA representatives, tour campus, meet fellow students and take part in planned activities during the half-day sessions. The 2022 NAIT Student Orientation is the first time since 2019 that the event has been held in person. Over the previous two years, student orientation was completed online because of the pandemic.
NAIT expects to welcome over 1,200 students over the two days.
NAIT Student Orientation kicks off the polytechnic’s back-to-school activities planned for the month of September, all of which aim to help students engage in campus life and take full advantage of student services and programs available to help them succeed.
Media are welcome to visit campus for NAIT Student Orientation. Gerard Hayes, NAIT vice-president, students and campus life and Tyleen Saison, NAIT Student’s Association (NAITSA) vice-president, internal will be available for interviews during Tuesday’s sessions.
