New, Exchange, and Worldly Transfer Students (NEWTS) Orientation Week! NEWTS Orientation is an orientation week at Queen’s University designed specifically for incoming exchange, international, castle, and transfer students. NEWTS Week is unique because it is the only inter-faculty, upper-year orientation at Queen’s. Thus, the week is structured to provide less focus on academic orientation as all the students participating are new to Queen’s, but not new to University.
NEWTS week provides students with necessary information regarding opportunities, services, and resources available at Queen’s. NEWTS will be provided with everything they need in order to make the most of their time at Queen’s. It allows students the opportunity to meet and foster relationships with other NEWTS as well as Queen’s students in a welcoming, vibrant, and relaxed environment. NEWTS Week runs during Orientation week in September. It is a great way to participate in fun, social, and engaging events, such as our ever popular Paint Party, Semi-Formal, and Carnival Night.
NEWTS week will be held on September 9th – 12th, 2015.
