Meet and Greet


Welcome to the University of Alberta!

When you first arrive on campus, make sure to visit the International Student Campus Check-In to pick up your welcome bag, and meet with a Welcome Ambassador to help you with your next steps in getting settled.

Connect with your International Student Advisors and fellow new international students at the Meet and Greet.

We are excited to be back on campus, and we can’t wait to meet the new members of our international student community. We invite all incoming first and second-year students to attend our Meet and Greet Zoom sessions.

Monday, August 23, 2021, at 8 am (MST)
Friday, August 27, 2021, at 12 pm (MST)

Why should I attend?

Your International Student Advisors will be your go-to advisors for information about study/work permits, working in Canada and adjusting to life in Edmonton. The advisors will share tips on how to navigate campus resources and where you can find cultural food comforts from your home.

We have planned breakout room sessions for you to connect with other international students with games and fun abound. It is the best way to start new friendships at the U of A!

Join the session on the day you want to attend. Registration is not required.
