Start today to think about your next step forward at Fanshawe.

Here are some of the big things you need to know about!

Orientation Day: September 4, 2018

Plan to spend the day with us! Your program orientations sessions are generally scheduled to start at specific times between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. but there will be lots to do during the rest of the day to help you get ready for the term. The FSU has fun things for you to do between 4:00 and 7:00 p.m. that day. Check back in August for the specific times and location for your program orientation.
