The program, launched last year with support from the Student Life Enhancement Fund, introduces students to their new home through a series of excursions and lectures.
This year’s program includes a trip to the Art Gallery of Hamilton, a hike through Princess Point, a canoe trip around Cootes Paradise and a tour of City Hall.
