On the first day of class, leave your books at home and join other new-to-UBC students on the Okanagan campus for Create, a day-long orientation event designed to welcome new students like you to the close-knit UBC community.
What to expect
You’ll start off by meeting your Create orientation leader or peer mentor (if you requested one when you registered), and a small group of other UBC students from your degree or faculty. Together, you’ll:
- Attend Kick-Off, a ceremony designed to officially welcoming the incoming class of 2019
- Meet your faculty’s dean and important staff members
- Explore your new campus and get to know new and returning students
- Enjoy a free lunch and grab some prizes and UBC swag
- Learn more about on-campus resources, find out about opportunities to get involved, collect swag and listen to live music at Showcase
How to register
Register for Create online today – the first day of class will be here before you know it!
