If you're coming to the University of Alberta for the first time and you're enrolled in a Faculty of Arts program, you're invited to join us and our partners at OASIS for your Arts "Meet & Greet" Orientation!

As our way of welcoming you to your home in Arts, we've planned a resource fair featuring our entire Arts community! There will be food trucks, games, social activities, and quiet spaces for you to enjoy, and you can get information and new connections with representatives from each of our departments and service providers. You can also sign up for information sessions to meet Faculty of Arts Dean Robert Wood and OASIS President Hussain Alhussainy, and gain tons of helpful tips to help you succeed during your degree.
