Meet our Orientation Executive Team
We are excited to introduce you to our BHSc Orientation Week 2019 Executive team. The seven team members have been working hard over the past few months planning a variety of fun and educational events for the first-ever Bachelor of Health Sciences Orientation Week in September. These activities include tours of facilities, introductions to faculty members, and team-bonding.
The students who make up this team come from a variety of different backgrounds, ranging from Life Sciences to Gender Studies. Together, with our 27 Orientation leaders coming from equally varied backgrounds, they organize and facilitate fun and informative events for our incoming students that showcase all that Queen's and Health Sciences have to offer.
