What is Welcome Week?

Welcome week 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 out about the tools, services, and support available to you at Dawson.
  • find out what the college expects of you as a CEGEP student.
  • connect with staff, faculty, and other new students from your program.

Why should I attend my Welcome Day?

Your attendance will ensure that you have everything you need for a smooth start to the school year and connect you to the right resources should you be met with any obstacles in your first semester.
