Hello Future Student!
Welcome to the Orientation 2017. Capilano likes to start the year off with fun, and this year we've kicked the fun up a notch. When you arrive for your first day on Tuesday
September 5, you'll be meeting friends and faculty. Enjoy improv comedy, wrecking ball game, solve a
campus-wide app-based scavenger hunt, and so much more.
Orientation is an important event to get a sense of the CapU spirit, to meet your faculties, friends across nations and enjoy. After Orientation, you can bond further with others in the Capilano Community by attending the
CapU Street Party! There, you will find the real fun happening, students playing games, hip hop dance sessions, mouth drooling food from various Vancouver based food trucks and exploring the beautiful campus in an exciting way.
