NIC kicks off Orientation in Port Alberni

Explore NIC’s Roger St. campus in Port Alberni during Orientation this fall.

In-person orientation is back at NIC’s Port Alberni campus this fall, giving students new opportunities to learn about key services and supports that will help them throughout the school year.

New and returning students can join in-person events at the Port Alberni campus on Tuesday, Sept. 6 and Tuesday, Sept. 13 at the Roger Street campus, and Wednesday, Sept. 7 at the Tebo centre. All students are also invited to join live virtual sessions the week before classes begin, Aug. 29 to Sept. 2.   

"The Student Life team is looking forward to a return to in-person events where new students will meet other students, Faculty, and staff," said Mez Jiwaji, Associate Director, Student Life.

"We are using the tagline Get Connected, Get Supported, Get Involved. This year's Orientation will help students build their confidence and knowledge, which is essential for student success in and outside of the classes."

On-campus Orientation on Sept. 6 on Roger Street and Sept. 7 at the Tebo centre will feature tabling events to provide new students with information and prizes. On Sept. 13, on-campus Orientation at the Roger Street campus will feature a marketplace that features NIC supports, key community partners with helpful information, free prizes, and resources and a free lunch, from 11:30 am to 1 pm. 

Digital sessions, starting Aug. 29, will cover topics such as how to navigate NIC’s digital learning platforms, an overview of supports available to NIC students and how to get involved on campus.

Fall term classes start on Tuesday, Sept. 6, with the last day to register for Fall 2022 classes being Sept. 15.
