Coaching Summer Welcome Program
One of our ESP academic coaches will be calling and emailing you to schedule an essential Summer Welcome visit. The coach will answer your questions and take you through essential tools for a smooth entry into Carleton.
This includes navigating the online learning system, Brightspace, ensuring your CU email is set up, accessing lecture videos, how to use ESP resources, finding classes, funding/OSAP, and other necessary details. We highly recommend the Summer Welcome visits, as the coach will make sure you are ready to participate in Orientation Day on Sept 5, and succeed in the year ahead!
In early August, you will receive an email invitation to come to the ESP Coaching Office (1510 Dunton Tower) for a required pre-orientation Welcome Visit with an Academic Coach. If you have any questions, you can email Academic Coaching. This appointment will be essential for helping you get a strong start to your academic year.
- Fall: Your “frosh” experience. This week long program costs $135. Last year’s activities included a variety of games and parties, a hypnotist show, movie night and one day pass to City Folk. Information about Fall orientation for 2023 will be updated on Carleton’s orientation website in late July.
Note: ESP is part of the Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences – FASS – even if you’re in an ESP science or engineering stream. As an ESP student you can attend Orientation activities for FASS students and Centralized Fall Orientation activities.
The only required Orientation activity is Academic Orientation Day, which is taking place on Tuesday September 5, 2023
Academic Orientation Day is free and mandatory for all new students. The day includes an orientation session geared to introducing you to your studies in the Enriched Support Program, a lunch and concludes with Expo Carleton.

How to prepare for Orientation:
- Pull up your schedule/timetable in Carleton Central. There’s a handy “how-to” video here for how to access your class schedule/timetable.
- You’ll have a chance during orientation to meet in smaller groups for your FYSM 1900 (or ESLA) course and your ESP workshops (ESPW 1000) so be sure you know which sections you’re in.
