Program Description

Fall Orientation provides incoming undergraduate students with a week packed full of fun activities, a chance to make new friends, and an opportunity to gain the skills necessary to help transition to university life at Carleton University. The program focuses on helping students adapt socially, academically, and culturally to Carleton and the Ravens community.

Participation Type

Participation strongly encouraged.  Students who register are placed in the Fall Orientation stream that aligns with their faculty of study.  If a faculty specific program is full, students are automatically added to central stream.
