Welcome to St. Mike's Orientation 2017

Who Are We?

Welcome to St.Mike's

Students are drawn to St. Mike’s for various reasons. The University of St. Michael’s College provides a top-quality undergraduate experience at the heart of Canada’s greatest research university. It offers a close-knit community which maintains its Catholic identity, while welcoming people of all backgrounds. The College’s historic and picturesque campus is located steps away from the array of cultural, entertainment and sports attractions available in Toronto, one of the most diverse and vibrant cities in the world.  

What is Orientation?

Orientation Week is a great opportunity to become familiar with the University of St. Michael’s College campus, before entering your first year. By integrating both academic and social programming into Orientation, St. Mike’s strives to provide students with the proper tools necessary to feel comfortable and prepared when beginning their journey at the University of Toronto. Your Orientation Coordinators have worked diligently throughout the summer to ensure that the schedule allows students to comfortably transition into college life. 

This year, move- in day for residence students will be on Saturday September 2nd. St. Mike’s Orientation will run from Sunday September 3rd to Wednesday September 6th. Programming will be scheduled all day long to show case all that St. Mike’s has to offer, while welcoming you into our community before classes begin the next day on Thursday September 7th.    

Being the largest college and Orientation on campus, our aim is to ensure that Orientation Week fosters a sense of belonging, excitement and inclusivity within our tight knit St. Mike’s community. More so, we want to connect you with the proper resources necessary to facilitate exceptional academics.

Orientation Theme


St. Mike's welcomes you to USMC 5K where we encourage all incoming first year students to bring their best self. We hope this Orientation Week will provide you with the tools you need to run into the start of the school year! The theme resembles a college that promotes inclusivity, diversity, community and acceptance. We are looking forward to seeing all the different personalities USMC 5K will bring to light in September 2017.
