Incoming Student Orientation 2020

Welcome Sport Management class of 2024!  

In Sport Management (SPMA) we are all about involvement  

Yes, this firstever virtual orientation and welcome is different than any of us envisioned, but it is one we will all remember!  

Your first official day as a SPMA major is Tuesday September 8, 2020 and the time to get involved starts now. You are among some of the most involved, committed and energized students at Brock University! 

You will be making contributions to our community, but more importantly you are learning and making memories. This is what your four years at Brock and SPMA is ultimately about – social and professional experiences AND of course, academic work! 

There are so many experiences available to you including opportunities with student council, volunteering for Brock Athletics, international exchange programs, fieldtrips, and more. 

This unexpected COVID interruption will make you a unique cohort of SPMA students who develop skills in a whole new way. After all, university is about learning and new experiences. 

So please take the first easy step to your SPMA involvement and join professors, staff and students in Brock’s virtual welcome and take the time to see what resources are available to you.
