IGNITE is a FREE full day, academic orientation at New College! It is designed for students who are interested in a compact, academic-focused primer that will equip them with the tools necessary to succeed in university!

IGNITE includes academic research and writing workshops, orientation and transition events, as well as student health and wellness programming. You’ll be able to choose your own adventure and pick the sessions that best fit you!


Programming from last year’s IGNITE included:

  • Managing 200+ pages of reading per week
  • Writing scholarly science papers
  • Tips for multiple choice testing
  • Developing and organizing complex university papers
  • Student health and wellness- maintaining a balanced lifestyle
  • Learning outside of the classroom (research opportunities and international experience)

Similar programming will be available for this year’s academic orientation!

Session Descriptions and Schedule Coming Soon! 

Registration will be available mid July (all first year students will receive an email)!

IGNITE will take place on Saturday, September 8th, 2018.

Capacity for this program is limited.
