Event description

Description

Ottawa Campus Only.

AC Start is “pre-orientation” – it’s where you get organized before AC Day 1.

AC Start gives you (plus parents/families/spouses) a chance to visit the Ottawa campus prior to the first day of school, so that you can get a head start on the information and tools that will set you up for success. AC Start is your opportunity to access important services in a one-stop-shop setting. Think Apple store – this will be a similar concept. Please bring your own device (BYOD – tablet, laptop, etc.).

AC Start on April 24 will take place in the Robert C. Gillet Student Commons (E Building) and will run from 2:00pm - 5:00pm.



Check out the schedule for AC Start!

Sign up for all the sessions, or just the ones you need or are interested in.
