Cambrian College extends warm welcome, plenty of support as hundreds move into residence this weekend

Posted on Wednesday September 2, 2015

SUDBURY – Cambrian College has a full schedule of activities to welcome and support the nearly 700 students who will be moving into campus dorms and townhouses this Friday, September 4 and Saturday, September 5.

“For students and their parents, moving into residence marks a new chapter in life, which is exciting, but also a little scary,” said Marko Miladinovic, who is a residence life coordinator. “Often, it’s the first time living away from home, which can be worrisome for students and their parents, but we’ve organized two days of activities to help students ease into life on campus, meet new friends, and get familiar with staff, services and supports.”

Activities scheduled this weekend include:

  • D.J. and photo booth in the courtyard on Friday and Saturday, 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
  • Free BBQ lunch for first-year students and their family members on Friday and Saturday from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the cafeteria
  • All-residents’ meeting in gyms A and B on Saturday from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Free dinner for first-year students and their family members on Friday and Saturday from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Student Life Centre
