Student Life at Algoma University
By Mark Allard
Being a smaller university, removed from the bright lights and bustle of southern Ontario, Algoma University`s International Student Services(ISS) is responsible for creating vibrant, diverse and exciting student life on campus for international students.
International Student Orientation Program
International students begin their time at Algoma University with the International Student Orientation Program, available at the beginning of each semester. In welcoming the students, the orientation combines tours, information sessions, entertainment and meals. Local community groups are invited to speak to the students about their services and volunteer opportunities available within the community.
Canadian Cultural Experiences
A lot of the cultural education and experiences happen outside of the classroom. At Algoma University students are encouraged to partake in various events put on by ISS. Each year students participate in sleigh rides, ski trips, camping trips, Lake Superior nature hikes, Cooking Canadian classes and more!
ISS partners and works closely with the Algoma Multicultural Students Association (AMSA) in order to bring large scale celebrations of major world holidays to Algoma University`s campus. Each year this partnership stages Eid , Diwali, Chinese New Year, Japan Night and Black History Month Celebrations.
