Frosh Kits 2013

A word from the Orientation Chair…

HEY! Students of Vanier College, and welcome to York University. My name is Ariel Derrick and I am a fourth year Administrative Studies student with a concentration in marketing. I am from a tiny little island in the Caribbean called Antigua and Barbuda. I am a true West Indian so I love the beach, the sun and a good “lime”.  This year I am Vanier College’s Orientation Chair, and basically, it is my job to plan YOUR Frosh Week.

For those of you who have heard of this, “Frosh Week”, we hope you are as excited as we are. For those of you who have not, in a nutshell it is basically the BEST WEEK OF YOUR LIVES.

And why is this?  Frosh Week consists of on-campus events like athletics day, campus tour, etc. There are also off-campus events such as Wasaga Beach and our Boat Cruise, and of course, lot’s of joint parties with the other colleges. At Frosh Week you will meet hundreds of students prepared to help you adjust to this new atmosphere; whether it’s your first time living away from home, first time to Canada or Toronto, first time at a large school. For all your firsts there is someone there to help. You will make many new friends who will not only be in your classes, but who will also become some of your best friends. You need help studying? You like to have fun? You like to play sports? You like meeting new people? You like music and dancing?  Well, so do all of us.

University can be a scary place. The professors are intimidating, the classes are large, and you have much more responsibility. BUT we have a cure for that, and the beautiful students of Vanier College Council, Athletics Council, the Frosh Bosses, the Residence Dons and of course myself, are all here to help you make that tough transition.

Stay posted for the schedule/events, some new videos and updates. Be prepared, the best four years of your life starts NOW. Vanier College is a growing family; we’re just waiting on you.

If you have any questions or concerns, or are just super excited about Frosh Week hit us up at:
