TRU Orientation

Most TRU Orientation events this year will take place virtually. This year instead of just one day of orientation we are offering a full week of events from Sept. 8-11th. You can create your own orientation experience by picking what you want to know.

During our orientation events you will learn about the people, places, supports and resources available on campus. You will meet some current students and staff — some new and some not-so-new - as you explore your university.

TRU Orientation is not just for new-to-TRU students — it is for all TRU students.
