*Orientation in Ottawa

Before the launch of the official Discover Year programming in September, we offer an in-person orientation week in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada for ALL Discover Year students. During this week, students participate in fun and engaging activities such as social events, team-building exercises, cultural activities, and more—giving them the opportunity to bond with other students and build meaningful connections that set them up for even greater success throughout their Discover Year.

We strongly encourage students living in Boston to travel to Ottawa for the orientation week, if this is feasible for them. Our staff will gladly support students to arrange their travel and secure accommodation in Ottawa to make sure they can get the most out of the exciting orientation week experience.
