Moncton – The winter term is in full swing at Crandall University where staff and faculty returned from the holidays to welcome new undergraduate and graduate students to campus, many of whom completed just one day of classes before a winter storm hit.
A New Group of Graduate Students
This semester the international graduate orientation took place from January 3 to 5 and welcomed around 150 new international graduate students to campus. Over the course of these three days, Crandall’s Graduate Student Life department held information sessions on topics such as life in Moncton, mental health and counselling services, student life, transportation, and more. Students also had the chance to hear from previous international graduate students about their personal experiences moving to Canada and pursuing their Master’s degrees at Crandall.
Return to Residence
The University welcomed students back to Colburne House residence on January 7.
Undergraduate Orientation and the First Snow Day of the Year
The semester’s traditional undergraduate registration and orientation was held on January 8 with classes set to start on January 9. Students had one day of classes before a snow storm closed the campus and moved all classes online for the day. Academic Chapel was postponed to Tuesday, January 16.
In athletics news, Crandall men’s and women’s basketball teams have home games on January 12 at 6pm (women’s) and 8pm (men’s) versus St. Thomas, and on January 14 at 1pm (women’s) and 3pm (men’s) versus Holland College.
