Welcome to Innis College! You have joined an esteemed group of impressive, amazing and spectacular undergraduate students at what has been ranked the best college on campus (rankings decided by us, but we’re not biased so don’t worry). We would like to welcome you with a big virtual hug and an amazing Orientation experience!
This year you will be placed in one of the Elemental Empires: Water, Fire, Earth or Air. Historically, these elements have shaped the universe as we know it and see it. Individually, each element serves its own purpose in nature; however, they all come together to create balance. Similarly, we all have our own individuality that when combined with others lays the foundation for infinite possibilities.
Our theme, IN Your Element, represents the diverse lived experiences of the incoming student body and the importance of finding the ideal conditions that allow for your success. Innis is home to a diverse group of students, and it is only by coming together and sparking new connections that are we able to fully realize our true potential. So, work with your teammates through a variety of online challenges to accumulate points and win the first ever Elemental Empire Championship! Which Empire will reign supreme?
Orientation will look a little bit different compared to previous years but will remain equally as fun. Our structure will combine both synchronous and asynchronous components to provide a holistic experience to prepare you as best we can for this new journey! In August, you can expect pre-recorded modules and online activities to be available on Quercus for you to complete. These modules will cover topics that we believe will best prepare you for the unique learning opportunities that come from a virtual academic environment. In addition, fun quizzes and activities will be made available for you to win points for your Elemental Empire! Come September you can expect a live welcome, socials and other surprise events that we have planned to start your university experience off with a bang! We are all #INnistogether and we are so excited to welcome you to Innis Orientation 2020!
