Academic Department


Academic Department Orientations (ADO's) are designed to welcome you to your departments and programs.


Attending an ADO will allow you to learn about important support resources that are vital to your successful transition to university, help you understand expectations and policies specific to your discipline, and connect you with faculty members, staff, and other students.
