The goal of Orientation Week at Ryerson is to develop a sense of community and support the successful transition of new students living on and off campus. The Ryerson University community is conducive to the pursuit of personal development and academic success. Orientation is a time to discover what Ryerson University has to offer. Orientation is often the first interaction many incoming students have with the university campus and the individuals who actively make up its community. Our aim at Orientation is to welcome students to campus, introduce them to key resources, help them build a strong foundation to their start at Ryerson and, to have fun!
The primary function and goal of Ryerson Orientation Crew volunteers (ROCs) is to foster a welcoming environment for incoming students across campus (including within our residences) and to assist the Student Life Programs and Student Housing Services teams with the implementation and coordination of Orientation Week events. Volunteers are tasked with providing a seamless transition for all incoming students with a welcoming, enthusiastic attitude and an ability to disseminate relevant information and knowledge. They are also expected to assist with the running of orientation specific programming.
