Welcome Day Winter 2024
Welcome Day will be on January 18, 2024. New students (including transfer students) are invited to meet their dean and peers; learn about the services available; and get familiarized with the layout of the college before classes start. This event is optional, but students are strongly encouraged to participate in order to prepare themselves as a Dawson College student.
Students have been invited via email to attend a presentation at 1:30 pm or 2:15 pm.
Please arrive 20 minutes before the welcome presentation in order to register.
Welcome day is designed to provide new Dawson students with a first look at the tools and resources offered by the college. On your assigned Welcome Day, you will have the opportunity to:
- familiarize yourself with Dawson and the Dawson community.
- learn about the tools, services and support available to you at Dawson.
- find out what the college expects of you as a CEGEP student.
- meet staff, faculty, and other students from your program.
Your attendance will ensure that you have everything you need for a good start to the school term, as well as connect you to the right resources to be successful in your studies.
