Three Simple Steps to Get the Most Out of Your First Day at Algonquin College

Are you one of the lucky students ready to start your fall term? Feeling a bit overwhelmed and unsure about what to expect? Worried about missing out on all the action? Then follow these simple steps to make the most of your first day:

Step 1: Know what is happening

Remember, all classes will be suspended on AC Day 1, giving you the perfect opportunity to fully immerse yourself in the day's activities! Your program orientation is a must-attend event, so be sure to check the schedule for the timing. Beyond that, the campus is your playground to explore! Find all the activities for Day 1 here.

Step 2: Prioritize

The array of activities is diverse, catering to different interests. From the lively AC Wolves Fest that lasts all day to engaging sessions on tools like Brightspace and Zoom, there's something for everyone. Don't forget the little things that make a big difference, like complimentary coffee, snacks (while supplies last), and even video games!

Plus, who could resist the furry companions awaiting cuddles in the Ishkodewan Courtyard (located outside the C Building)? Take a moment to browse through the Virtual AC Day 1 Magazine and find the activities you like most.

Step 3: Have the campus map handy

To ensure you navigate your way through Day 1 seamlessly, make sure you have the campus map accessible on your smartphone. You can easily access it through the Algonquin website or by downloading the AC Mobile Safety App. You can also take a virtual campus tour at any time.

With these three steps in mind, you’ll be ready to make the most of AC Day 1. Don’t forget to share your first-day experiences online and to tag @algonquincollege as well as @sa_algonquinyour journey is about to begin, and Algonquin College is ready to welcome you!
