Winter Ascent

Winter Ascent is the Residence Services winter semester orientation program specifically designed for students living in a UAlberta residence and moving in for the Winter term.

Transitioning to university and residence can be tough. Making this transition in January can be tougher.

Winter Ascent was created to provide an opportunity for residents to become comfortable in their new living environment, develop peer connections and become better oriented to the Edmonton community and UAlberta campus. Winter Ascent focuses on providing residents with the chance to explore Edmonton and establish a strong support system in residence prior to the start of Winter Term Classes.

More to look forward to:

At the beginning of January, residents moving into any of our residences will have the opportunity to take part in many activities that will be sure to have a lasting impact on your residence experience.

These programs will help you navigate your way around your new community this semester, and have some fun doing it!

There will be community building programs, recreational activities, a Day of Service in which students engage and volunteer with the Edmonton community, and educational workshops, all to help start you off on the right foot this semester.

Residence Life programming at Peter Lougheed Hall will include leadership building experiences such as workshops and service learning opportunities, networking events, and guest speakers.
