The volunteer orientation leaders swarmed the Keele and Glendon campus residences and hefted heavy boxes, conducted tours, stirred up college spirit with cheers and chants. As part of Orientation 2019, parents and students learned what to expect during the first year of university from faculty, staff and upper-year students.
