We understand that starting university, or returning to campus, can be an exciting yet at times overwhelming experience, which is totally okay! We would like to help ease your transition into life as a Dalhousie student and invite you to our Computer Science New to Dal events, virtual and drop-in sessions and activities.

Our orientation program supports you as a new or returning student in our Faculty (and at the university). Orientation serves as an introduction to academic, community, resources, support services, and social engagement opportunities.

Activities will be taking place throughout the term and are open to all students. Please continue to check this page and your Dalhousie email as activities and sessions will be added throughout the term!
