Fleming College launched its Spring semester on Tuesday, May 19 through online and alternate delivery. Although we are disappointed we can’t meet Fleming students in person due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are excited to welcome them to the new virtual space!
To welcome new students, Fleming College is hosting a Virtual Orientation. This virtual event is an opportunity for students to meet with faculty and peers, get program information, discover resources and supports, and more.
Fleming College President Maureen Adamson also delivered a video message to welcome new students:
The Mental Health And Addiction Worker, Practical Nursing, Project Management, Social Service Worker, and Supply Chain Management – Global Logistics programs are all offering first semester online, as faculty have adapted courses to ensure students can achieve learning outcomes. On May 19 and May 20, students in these programs had the opportunity to meet their coordinator, classmates and get information about their program at their Academic Program Orientation Session.
Virtual Orientation also features sessions on student services, off-campus housing, counselling, online learning and more. This includes Introduction to Student Services (Thursday, May 28 at 1 p.m.), Learning Online @ Fleming: What You Need to Know! (Tuesday, May 26 at 11 a.m.), and Housing (May 27 at 10 a.m., meeting number 735 723 262; May 29 at 10 a.m., meeting number 735 723 262).
On the Orientation webpage, students can also find links to key contacts for assistance, and resources and supports such as the Library and Tutoring & Academic Skills Centre. The goal of Virtual Orientation is to help students get a successful start to the semester.
Although Fleming College faculty and staff would love to meet new students in-person, the virtual learning space provides the opportunity to meet virtually, share resources and supports, and help ensure student success.
We wish all our students the best on their academic journey and, if you need anything, support is just a click away!
