Week Zero

Welcome to Week Zero - Lassonde’s Orientation Week


Week Zero is a 9 day jam-packed week filled with fun and interactive activities to help transition incoming students into a new chapter of their lives. It is also our way to welcome students to our vibrant Lassonde Community and their home for the next 4 (or more) years. Week Zero runs from Saturday, September 1st until Sunday, September 9th, during this time it is the few days of classes, but we have taken time out of our schedule so that students can attend their lectures and will even walk them to where they need to go!


This week provides students the opportunity to get to know their campus, their peers and prepare for their first year at University. It is a wonderful experience for all new students to share, where they make friends, bonds, connections and memories they'll cherish for the rest of their lives. Check out weekzero.ca for more information! You can purchase your “kit” (all-access pass swag bag) at yustart.yorku.ca/rsvp through “New Student Login” and clicking on Social Orientation!


While Week Zero is an optional week (but highly encouraged), an important aspect of this week is the York Orientation Day a.k.a. Lassonde's Academic Orientation Day.  York Orientation Day is an important and required event for all new Lassonde undergraduate students. On this day, you will be introduced to strategies and resources to help you successfully adjust to the challenges of university life and get tips for success inside and outside the classroom. You will also meet the Dean and other key faculty and staff members from the Lassonde School of Engineering.


When: Tuesday, September 4th, 2019, 1:00pm to 8:00pm. Please try to arrive early to sign in.
