Residence Orientation Week

Residence Orientation Week

Our Residence Orientation week is designed to assist you in your transition to Sheridan and prepare you for success. Please mark your calendar and plan to join us!

Transitioning to life at college means more independence and more responsibility and, if you’re like most students, you are probably looking forward to the adventure, but it can also a bit scary! Residence Orientation Week (ROW) aims to calm your nerves and help orient you to the campus and your college community. ROW includes an introduction to all of Sheridan College’s Student Services and academic support programs; this is the information that makes the difference between just getting by and excelling at college life. In addition to the educational sessions, we also include many social events and activities. You’ll feel confident starting your first day of college when you already know where all your classrooms are located, walking to classes with new friends.
