Brescia O-Week

Orientation Week!

Brescia University College, the Brescia Soph-Peer Mentor Team, the Brescia University College Students’ Council, and the Western Orientation Program are prepared and excited to welcome all new students during Orientation Week 2016!

Theme Reveal

Our programming will orient new students to life on Brescia and Western campuses with a diverse selection of social and academic events.

Theme Reveal:

Brescia League will transform Brescia University College into a team atmosphere throughout Orientation Week. Brescia will now be home to the Brescia Hillgoers League, Established 1919. New to Brescia students can experience many ups and downs during their first year, but a team creates a welcoming environment that can help to combat those challenges, somewhere that everyone can feel safe and welcomed. Everyone has a role on a team, and every player is valuable to the overall success. They will be encouraged to learn from their fellow students, to identify their own strengths and weaknesses and to challenge themselves to achieve their goals. Brescia will become “home base” for the New to Brescia Students and represents how we must work together to ensure that everyone feels included and important during their time here.
