The Orientation & Transition team, comprised of professional and student staff, strives to create a warm, welcoming and academically supportive community for over 3,000 new-to-TRU students each year.

Orientation & Transitions leaders work to provide information and guidance to interested students and other relevant parties at booths around campus and at other campus and community events. Ambassadors also lead training for orientation volunteers, and host informational TRU Student Life workshops throughout the semester.

As a new student it can be overwhelming to come to a new school, maybe even a new city, meet new people and adapt to a new level of education. Orientation and transitions leaders are an incredible support as a mentor to help make your first year as successful as possible.
