North Island College orientation day going ahead

Should the BC Teachers’ Federation job action continue, North Island College will be open and college operations will not be impacted

On Tuesday, Sept. 2, North Island College will roll out the welcome mat to host a full program of Orientation Day events for hundreds of students attending college at Campbell River campus this fall.

An annual tradition at NIC, Orientation Day is often a student’s first introduction to the people, places, and resources on campus that will make their year a success. Students can locate classrooms, meet instructors, visit the library and bookstore, and get started with confidence.

This year’s event will get underway at 8:30 a.m. with complimentary refreshments for students hosted at the Gathering Place by the Aboriginal Education department. Then at 9:30 am, students will attend Program Introductions to learn more about their programs and to meet their instructors, college staff, and North Island Students’ Union representatives. The afternoon continues with a barbecue lunch and a series of popular drop-in workshops. With North Island College and Timberline Secondary sharing facilities, should the BC Teachers’ Federation job action continue, North Island College will be open and college operations will not be impacted, with all programs and services being offered as regularly scheduled.
