If it’s past the deadline but I still want to apply to be a facilitator, can I still apply?

Please contact: fallorientation@carleton.ca for more information.

When are the training days?

For Team Leaders the training days are Thursday, August 31, 2017 and Friday, September 1, 2017. For all volunteers the training day is Friday, September 1, 2017. 

Do I need to bring anything to Training?

Yes. On the Friday, September 1 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 participating in Fall Orientation. All training days are mandatory.

How do I get my Police Record Check?

You can come to the Student Experience Office (430 Tory Building) to get an Ottawa Police Record Check form, or you can get one at a Police station. To get your Volunteer Letter, which allows you to have your Police Record Check processed for free you can email: fallorientation@carleton.ca. Please review our steps for obtaining a police record check for more information.

How long does a police record check take to process?

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 September 1, 2017.

When is Fall Orientation Week?

The Centralized and Sprosh Fall Orientation week runs from Sunday, September 3 to Saturday, September 9, 2017. The EngFrosh Orientation week runs from Sunday, September 3 to Sunday September 10, 2017.

What are the different Fall Orientation Programs?

Centralized FROSH is the largest program. It is open to all students in every program, and it caters to over 2800 students. Sprosh is geared towards new students entering the Sprott School of Business. Engfrosh 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.

What are my responsibilities throughout the week?

Different position descriptions are posted online at here. Furthermore, all volunteers are under a contract during the week. This contract will be reviewed in detail at the training session on Friday, September 1, 2017.

What is Shinerama?       

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.
