Yes. On the Friday August 30 training day, all volunteers must present their police record checks in order to trade it in for their jerseys – volunteers who cannot present their police record check will not be able to participate in Fall Orientation. All training days are mandatory.
The time varies depending on how busy the police station is, but it is usually takes at least 6 – 8 weeks. We strongly recommend all volunteers to get their police record checks done by beginning to mid- June in order to have their Police Record Checks ready by August 30, 2018.
Centralized Fall Orientation is the largest program. It is open to all students in every program, and it caters to over 2800 students. Sprosh Fall Orientation is geared towards new students entering the Sprott School of Business. Engfrosh Fall Orientation is geared towards new students entering Engineering, Architecture, Industrial Design and Information Technology. However, it should be noted that during the week there are some programming that overlaps between the three orientations (ex: the concert, CU @ Night, and the Much Music Video Dance…etc). Please review our program information page to learn more.
Different position descriptions are posted online here. Furthermore, all volunteers are under a contract during the week. This contract will be reviewed in detail at the training session on Friday, August 30, 2019.
Shinerama is an organization founded in the 1960s to help raise funds for Cystic Fibrosis (CF). CF is a genetic disease that causes thick mucus to build up in the pancreas and the lungs and there is no cure. Every year, Fall Orientation week integrates Shinerama throughout the week to support the fight against cystic fibrosis. Learn more on the Shinerama page.
