Want to know what is happening on campus for freshmen? You have found the right place!
We encourage you to take part in as many Orientation 2019 activities as possible to get a big taste of NTU life. The university and student leaders believe that Orientation should be inclusive and welcoming for every student, and we take a serious view of students who engage in ragging. We also understand that everyone’s personal space and comfort zones are different. So if your plans change and you need to withdraw from an activity or you do not wish to participate in a specific activity that you have registered for, please notify the event organiser beforehand.
Here is a quick rundown of what’s happening and when.
The Freshmen Welcome Ceremony is our official welcome ceremony for all undergraduate freshmen. It’s held during Orientation Week and is a rite of passage for freshmen to be inducted into the University. To check which ceremony you can attend, click here.
The NTU Students’ Union (NTUSU) hosts Welcome Week during the first week of classes. All NTU student clubs and societies set up booths to share information about their activities, sign up new members and kick-off their year of activities. There is also great stage entertainment throughout the week to celebrate the start of the new academic year.
Freshmen Orientation – the beginning to university life!
Freshmen Orientation is the most important event for new students. Held two week before classes start, Schools, Halls and student clubs host activities to help orient freshmen within the campus and prepare them for the start of classes.
Strapped for time? We highly recommend taking part in your School orientation programme. There, you will get the chance to meet other freshmen, senior students and even professors who will be teaching your classes. Senior students will share information on wayfinding, tips on how to select academic courses, and where to get the best food on campus! You definitely do not want to miss these.
If you intend to stay on campus, do take part in your Hall orientation programme. It is a great time to get to know your fellow residents and find out more about your Hall facilities and activities.
A list of orientation activities can be found here. Please remember to download the consent form and bring it along for any orientation events.
If you have any feedback or experiences to share, you may email to: D-SAO@ntu.edu.sg using your NTU email account. We love to hear from you!
Once again, welcome to our Freshmen Orientation and have a great NTU Student Experience!
