It is normal to be nervous about sending your new university student off to participate in Orientation. However, rest assured that this transition period is crucial in making new friends, learning about the resources available at Vic and UofT more broadly, and making university a home for the next few years.

The Exec team (Pink Shirts), the Leaders (Yellow Shirts), and the Transition Mentors (Purple Shirts) are here to guide new students through their first days on campus. We hope to create a welcoming environment and a positive space for all students. Our campus life coordinator will be present at all activities throughout Orientation, and is a great resource for students. 

If you have any questions or concerns that are not addressed on this website, please feel free to contact your student’s Victoria College Campus Life Coordinator, Christina Alcena, at In addition you can call the main Office of the Dean of Students at (416) 585 4494.
