Ted Rogers School Orientation (Commerce Frosh)

Ryerson Orientation Week

Ryerson’s Orientation Week takes place the week before classes begin and gives incoming students the chance to connect with other new students, get familiar with their academic program, and get to know their way around campus. Our Orientation Week is designed to meet the needs of all new students.

Every year we offer new events and programs, but every Orientation Week at Ryerson features:

  • Academic program and faculty-specific orientations so incoming students can meet other peers in their program, find out about faculty-specific resources and get to know their professors.
  • Information about how to access on-campus supports and resources so new students know how to find what they need after classes start.
  • Tons of engaging virtual performances, concerts, and giveaways!
