Orientation

  • Welcome to George Brown College!

    On behalf of the entire Orientation and Student Life team, WELCOME to George Brown College!

    Join your fellow classmates for the official college welcome.

    New Student Orientation is an amazing opportunity to meet your fellow classmates and faculty, get important information about your program and the services available at the college to guide your success, and learn about all the awesome ways to get involved on campus.

    Depending on what program or student group you fall under, there may be multiple orientation programs offered to you. So take the time to read about them and register your attendance to the ones that will benefit your transition into the college.

    You can check out the links on the right side of this page to help you navigate through getting started on the right track. Don’t forget to connect with the college community and follow us on social media!
