Year 2 Orientation: Back at Brock

We know your first year at Brock was unique and that a lot has changed. What remains, is that Brock is ready to support your experience and success as you return to campus this year. 

We listened to your feedback, Badgers, and created a series of unique orientation experiences just for you that begin this summer and will support you throughout the year. Whether you participated in orientation in your first year or not, Year 2 Orientation: Back at Brock will provide you with opportunities to create new friendships, be connected to academic and student support services, and to learn more about making the most of your time as a Badger.

If you are a returning student entering your second year or beyond, please consider joining us. You’re an important member of the Brock community and we can’t wait to welcome you this Fall!
