Orientation Week A benificial Experience 70 Entering university is a new chapter in a person s life. A first year university student is exposed to new experiences and challenges. Opportunities during orientation week make new challenges and experiences enjoyable. Firstly, a person gets to make friends in multiple faculties with campus mixers. Secondly, campus tours show a person where different services are found. Finally, faculty games allow a person to meet friends within their area of study. When opportunities are provided to make the transition from high school to university easier, it is benificial to first year undergraduate students. When campus wide mixers are prepared for students during orientation week, the students benifit by making new friends in other faculties. For example, Waterloo s orientation week in 2007 prepared an evening event, When Dinosaures Ruled the World. This event brought together students from the faculties of arts, engineering and math. This event provides students with the chance to meet people from outside their own faculty.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
