WELLAND – More than 1,500 new international students arriving at Niagara College for the new academic year will be greeted with a variety of sessions and activities designed to introduce them to life at college and in Canada.
NC’s International Division will be hosting International Orientation prior to the campus-wide Orientation Week. Most activities will take place on September 1 at both the Welland and NOTL Campuses (8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.).
“International Orientation is designed to support international students on their transition to Canada, the Niagara region and to their studies at NC,” said Sean Coote, director of NC’s International Division.
Several orientation features have been enhanced for international students this year, including a NC International Orientation app; a ‘Canada corner’ featuring Canadian themed activities; and a pal mentor program (including online mentor selection with instant chat feature). International Orientation continues with a trip to Niagara Falls on September 2, including a Hornblower boat tour and shopping.
