Winter Welcome 2017

Winter Welcome activities help students take their first steps toward achieving success at Saint Mary’s. It also provides opportunities for you to learn what it means to become a member of the Saint Mary’s community.

As a student who is new to life at Saint Mary’s, you are probably feeling both excited and anxious about what awaits you. Rest assured that there are many services on campus to support you in succeeding both academically and on a personal level. At Winter Welcome you will meet your new professors and advisors, who will introduce to your Faculty home, be it Arts, Business or Science. You will also learn about the many resources and support services available to you on campus, and get to know other students on campus.

  • During Winter Welcome, Saint Mary’s will be offering ‘Safe @SMU’ safety training sessions. Also, we have developed safety modules which can be watched in advance of your arrival on campus. All new students are expected to watch the modules and attend one of the sessions offered in early January. Please check the schedule and plan which session is most convenient for you.
  • International students can also benefit from support services provided by our International Student Centre and our Winter Welcome activities will include special events to assist new international students in getting settled in Canada.
  • Winter Welcome Kits are available while supplies last! These kits, sold by SMUSA, your students’ association, are filled with fun and give you exclusive access to Winter Welcome events. You can purchase your Winter Welcome Kit at the Information Desk on the 1st floor of the Student Centre. You should also make sure to download the SMUSAPP for updates on activities, events, societies, and much more.
