- academic preparation: research, group work and faculty-specific break-out sessions where you’ll meet professors outside of the classroom environment.
- social and cultural activities that build your university community and help you succeed in your first term and beyond.
- off-campus trips that allow you to explore Kelowna and the beautiful Okanagan Valley.
