The Dalhousie Student Union is responsible for planning and running Orientation Week, but they do lots of other things too.

Meet The Team

There’s a large team of people working all summer long to put this week together, and an even larger team on deck in September to show you around.


Shine Day is an O-Week event raising money for Shinerama, but there are plenty of other ways to get involved too.
