Freshie Journey

Welcome to Constructor University
Freshie Journey 2023

We at Constructor University have the greatest pleasure of welcoming our new students, our Freshies, to campus! Our goal is to support you in having a comfortable arrival and providing you with the best college experience.

Our online freshie orientation, known as the Freshie Journey, will prepare you for this new phase of your life before you arrive on campus. We want the transition to be as smooth as possible for you.

We have a sequence of online live events planned and content on-demand to help orient if need to quarantine upon arrival. The journey is informative but fun and interactive, and you will get the opportunity to connect with your peers during the final month of your summer vacation.

We are looking forward to seeing you on campus!

Peer Mentor Program

Our Goal is for your College to be a "home away from home" while you are here. With over 100 different nationalities, it is of the upmost importance to ensure that all our residents feel safe, welcomed, respected and recognized. The process begins even before you arrive on campus and continues throughout your time here. Our Peer Mentor Program is a critical aspect of creating a "home away from home" starting immediately after your arrival to ensure a smooth transition to your new life on campus. 

Our Peer Mentors are returning undergraduate students who have already spent at least one year on campus. They are selected and trained to orient and mentor new incoming students during the orientation program and throughout their entire first year on campus.

You will be assigned a Peer Mentor and will be part of a Peer Mentor Group of all incoming students living on your floor or block. This allows you to easily connect with your Peer Mentor and group on a regular basis - you can study together in the study rooms or spaces in your building, plan floor dinners, or other events to get to know one another. The peer Mentors are also available for individual meetings and provide support over the group's online chat. 

Arrival

We look forward to welcoming our Fall 2023 Freshies on campus on August 29th, the official arrival and check-in date. On this date, you will be able to go through the check-in process upon arrival as all our staff is waiting to welcome you to the Sports and Convention Center on the Constructor University Campus.

The earliest date our Freshies can arrive on campus and receive access to their room is August 26th. However, no additional support, directions, or transportation can be made available upon arrival on dates other than August 29th
