First Year Retreat
Welcome to the University of Alberta First Year Retreat Page!
Hosted by ESS, this orientation program is for new students entering their first year of Engineering. Our goal is to help you get adjusted to your new life at the U of A, meet your fellow classmates, and make your transition into engineering a bit easier! To learn more about the First Year Retreat, check out the FAQs.
At the First Year Retreat, you’ll be grouped with fellow first year engineers to participate in a variety of team building events including capture the flag, relay races, and giant beer pong. You’ll be competing to win prizes including a free spot on the engineering ski trip, tickets to the ESS glow party, engg swag, and more! You’ll make new friends and even better memories!
