WeekZero is not your average frosh week. York University prides itself on having the longest orientation in Canada, regularly having events for nine (9) days leading up to the start of classes. WeekZero provides incoming Lassonde students with a wide variety of events that allow you to make connections with your peers, learn about the opportunities on campus and prepare for your first (1st) academic term.
At WeekZero, you can be sure that you will find yourself in the Lassonde community. With a diverse student body that creates a wonderful mosaic of unique people, everyone can rest easy knowing that there is something for everyone. When joining WeekZero, you will have the chance to meet our great team of frosh leaders who are excited to welcome you to Lassonde with open arms.
At WeekZero 2021, students will be more connected than ever to our community. Starting in the last of August, we will be kicking off the countdown to WeekZero with weekly events such as speed friending, programming tutorials, program meetups, movie nights, and more.
Events at WeekZero include
-Social events such as movie nights, paint nights or Jackbox
-E-Sports Program meetups to meet your peers
-Panels to ask questions to upper-year students in your program, in co-op, research, or clubs
-Sessions with Lassonde clubs and teams to find opportunities to get involved
To provide a first-class experience, we will be using two platforms that are each well suited to maximize the fun of our events with minimal technical friction. Firstly, all events for WeekZero can be found on CampusGroups, the place for student life at Lassonde; on CampusGroups, a link to each event will be there for you to register and attend. As well, our WeekZero community is on Discord- a living, breathing and safe place to connect with other students and leaders between and during events. An invite to the Discord will be mailed out in the first week of August and can be found in every WeekZero event description on CampusGroups.
