A "commuter" is a student who travels from home in order to get to class everyday - in other words, pretty much everyone who does not live in residence! We here at Victoria College aim to provide you with a memorable introduction to university life. Prior to September's Orientation Week, Commuter Orientation, or "Comm-O" as we like to call it, is a weekend of programming exclusively for our incoming class of commuter students - and yes, you can go to both O-Week and Comm-O!

All students who register for Commuter Orientation are guaranteed a room to stay in for Saturday night, and food throughout the weekend. Activities planned include talks on university life, information sessions, tours, socials, and lots of fun! So mark your calendars for this year’s Comm-O, Saturday & Sunday - August 8-9, 2020!
