85 Kwantlen Polytechnic University faculty and staff welcome students back to school

(METRO VANCOUVER, B.C.) Continuing the tradition of welcoming new and returning students in the beginning of the school year, friendly faculty and staff members at Kwantlen Polytechnic University volunteered as welcome hosts to greet students at Kwantlen’s Langley, Cloverdale, Richmond and Surrey Campuses.

Covering over 135 volunteer hours from September 7-8, the Kwantlen welcome hosts sported Kwantlen welcome host T-shirts and wore “Ask Me” signs as they helped new and returning students navigate the campuses and answered questions about parking, classroom locations and student services.

The welcome host program is one of many Kwantlen initiatives and services in place to help students transition successfully into an undergraduate university environment. Students can also take advantage of free study skill and time management seminars and other support services and social opportunities available on campus.

As a leader in innovative and interdisciplinary education, Kwantlen Polytechnic University offers all learners, regardless of background and preparation, opportunities to achieve the highest standards of academic performance. For more information, visit: kwantlen.ca
