Carleton University’s Fall Orientation program is committed to providing accessible and inclusive programming for any and all students attending. Please see below for an in-depth description of each accessibility icon as found in the Fall Orientation 2018 schedule.
Large Event (>100)
These events can be expected to have upwards of 100 people including Fall Orientation volunteers, first year participants and various staff from Carleton University services. All large events comply with the Risk Management limitations for safe capacities of people in each space being used.
Small Event (<50)
These events can be expected to include sections with less than 50 people at times. Please keep in mind this typically happens within a large event setting. For example, you may be participating in an activity within a small space while other similar small events take place nearby. All small events comply with the Risk Management limitations for safe capacities of people in each space being used.
Carleton’s campus is wheelchair accessible. Our volunteers are happy to assist any students with accessibility needs navigating to different events, using the tunnel system and elevators, or other assistance needs. An accessible shuttle will be available on Monday during Canal Games outside of the University Centre bookstore. Shuttles will be available to and from the activities until 5:00pm.
This event includes sound systems that may include music, microphone usage, and speakers with loud projection.
Food will be provided at this event. Fall Orientation is able to accommodate any and all dietary restrictions including vegetarian, vegan, halal, gluten free and dairy free. Please advise a facilitator or staff member to explore what dietary options can be provided to meet your needs.
These events will include activities or events with water.
These events will include friendly competition that may feature cheers, team achievements and activities with tiered rankings for performance. All competitive events are structured to abide by Carleton University’s safer space policies.
All of Carleton University’s Fall Orientation programs are dry, which means no alcohol will be served or tolerated at any time. Students participating in the program as well as volunteers are expected to abide by a zero tolerance policy for drinking during the week.
