Welcome Class of 2024
OVER 100 YEARS OF TRADITION
With over 100 years of traditions, Smith Commerce Orientation Week is one of the oldest and most elaborate of its kind in the country. Not only is this a tremendous opportunity to learn about the program and meet fellow Commerce students, but it is an experience that is bound to stick with you far beyond your university career. This year, we are working on providing you with the best possible virtual Orientation Week possible!
A MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIR
"The country's greatest undergraduate business program deserves an Orientation Week that goes above and beyond to uphold its legacy. Grant yourself an incredible four days to witness what the next four years hold for you - welcome to Orientation Week and welcome home."
- Taylor Kim, Commerce Executive on Orientation Chair 2020
Commerce Orientation Week is an unforgettable experience. Strong bonds are formed between first years and upper years, and the CEO does a fantastic job of providing the tools and support for a successful four years in the program. Most importantly, it’s a ton of fun — the memories will live on and the friendships will last a lifetime. Welcome to the family!
For me, Orientation Week was an opportunity to meet some of my best friends and to discover new passions that have become integral to my experience at Queen's. The best part is that the experience extends past the week itself, and still impacts me today!
Welcome to Queen’s Commerce Orientation Week. During Orientation Week, you will have the opportunity to meet future classmates, peers and mentors. Welcome to the best four years of your life.
