Sask Polytech students welcomed to campus for new academic year
Saskatchewan Polytechnic and the Saskatchewan Polytechnic Students’ Association welcome students back to campus.
September 1, 2017 – Saskatchewan Polytechnic and the Saskatchewan Polytechnic Students’ Association (SPSA) are collaborating to welcome students to our campus communities the first week of September.
elcome Days activities are being planned by a committee made of Sask Polytech faculty and staff along with the SPSA. This collaborative approach formally brings the student voice into the event planning process. Welcome Days activities include exhibitor’s hall, breakfast bars, free morning coffee, welcome barbeques and lunch hour entertainment. Sask Polytech also organizes orientation programming for international students and a summer transition program for Indigenous students.
“Welcome Days’ social events are great opportunities to break the ice and build professional networks between peers,” says Vann Cortez, SPSA president. “This collaborative work with Sask Polytech showcases the positive environment for personal and professional development that contributes to students’ success.”
“Our mission at Sask Polytech is to educate students and provide skilled and successful graduates,” says Anne Neufeld, Sask Polytech provost and vice-president, Academic. “Students who have a strong start in the academic year, finish strong. Creating an engaging campus-life experience with the SPSA is a great way to support student success.”
