  • OCAD University O-DAYS Events and Planning!

Dear Colleagues,

Planning has begun for OCAD University’s 2014 orientation—O-DAYS!—with a variety of activities scheduled August 26 to September 6!

Would you like to get involved and be part of the excitement, helping make O-DAYS! a blast for our incoming students?
Be on the Spirit Committee and help plan OCAD U orientation throughout the summer! Or sign up for the O-TEAM and join other staff, faculty, upper-year students and alumni volunteers who welcome and lead first-year students during the festivities! We want to hear from you: Email today!

Indicate your interest and we will let you know how to be part of the fun!

We are always looking for great content for the O-KITS we give out to our new students. If you would like to promote your department or service to our first-year students, contact us! Students love pins, magnets, pens, post-it notes to name a few! (no paper/flyers/brochures please)

If you are aware of, or connected to any local businesses or organizations looking to put some support into our upcoming OCAD U orientation, please share this opportunity with them and have them contact us! This is an excellent way to connect with a diverse, energetic, creative group of new students who will be part of the local community for the next four years and beyond!

Thank you,


Caring can be contagious. Catch it!
