Each year in September, OCAD University welcomes over 1,000 first-year undergraduate students to the community with orientation.
Fall 2017 Dates:
August 28 to September 8 with BIG-O-Day! on Tuesday, September 5.
Frosh? Puh-lease. OCAD U does not do "frosh." We do O-DAYS!
While O-DAYS! programming is informative — providing details about key resources on campus and helping you prepare academically — activities are also designed to be fun and inviting, helping build community and connection.
O-DAYS! highlights include:
- Annual face2face: postcard project
- Informative welcome presentations
- OCAD U Service Expo
- Ceremonial greetings from Indigenous Visual Culture Program (INVC)
- Words of wisdom from Dr. Sara Diamond, President/Vice Chancellor
- Introductions to your faculties from OCAD University Deans
- Special remarks from OCAD Student Union (OCADSU)
- Annual Above Ground Art Materials Fair (AMF)
- Annual Community Fair
- Annual Butterfield Park BBQ*
(beef, veggie and Halal hotdogs; unlimited popcorn and sno-cones!)
- Music, entertainment and more!
Coordinated by Campus Life and your OCAD Student Union, O-DAYS! takes place at the main campus building (100 McCaul St.) and in our green space, Butterfield Park. See you there!
