September Orientation

If you are a new resident of the college, the SJC Orientation provides many opportunities for you to get acquainted with Vancouver and prepare for your academic life at UBC.

This year we have an adapted the traditional program to ensure safety with more than 30 activities! The first part of the program includes more than 10 “quarantine-friendly” activities in September so that new residents can merge into our community, even remotely. These activities include live video tour sessions, online workshops, online movie sessions, e-games, online board games and online fitness classes! The second part of  SJC Orientation will be extended throughout the first Term by exploring activities such as hiking adventures near Whistler, BBQs, courtyard movies and visits to some of the most scenic places that Vancouver has to offer. Through this program, you will not only meet with your fellow residents but also ensure that you have a social life outside your studies at UBC.
