Summer Warm-Up Sessions

Are you interested in getting a head start on your university career at VIU? We are offering Summer Warm-up Sessions on our Nanaimo Campus throughout August. A Student Ambassador will tour new students around the campus and will help you get a few things done that you would normally do in your first week of classes. You will:

  • Get tips for transitioning from experienced students
  • Pick up your Student Card
  • Sign up for your Gym Membership
  • Tour the Library
  • Check out your building, the Bookstore, the Vancouver Island University Students' Union, and other hot spots
  • Sign up for your Student Computer Account
  • Put some Dining Dollars on your student card
  • Pick up your Parking Pass
  • And much more . . .
