Testimonials from Participants

“Comm-O has truly been one of my most memorable experiences as a first year student. I met so many new friends there that I stayed close with throughout the year. My favourite part was being able to play games and cards as a group until 2AM!”
— Arya Amatya, Comm-O 2016
“Comm-O was my first real university experience and it really helped with my transition. It was a place where I found lon lasting friendships, people who I could look up to and most importantly, it was the place where I felt like a part of the Vic family. #VicsGotSpirit!”
— Gabe Blanco, Comm-O 2016
“My favourite memory of Comm-O was meeting others from my part of town. It made me feel more comfortable knowing that others would experience the same commute as I would — it’s an extension of the Vic community. Also, learning last year’s frosh dance was great like learning all of the frosh dances!”

“I didn’t go to my commuter orientation during my first year, but I experienced it as a leader during my second. My comm-o experience was slightly different, but nevertheless I thoroughly enjoyed myself. My favourite part of Comm-O was seeing how the first year students connected so well and watching friendships blossom with such ease. Despite being in my second year, I learned a lot about the many incredible resources at Vic, specifically for commuters, that I had no knowledge of before and that made the commuter life so much more bearable :’) If you’re a commuter, Commuter Orientation is something that you DO NOT want to miss! I deeply regret not going to mine.”
