Orientation Serves

Students involved in orientation serves


Plant the seeds for getting involved during the rest of your time here in London.

This September, new Western students will get to see an incredible side of London as part of Orientation Serves. The event, now entering its third year, sees Western partner with local organizations to immerse students in the community for a day of volunteering and service as a keystone event during Orientation Week. This day of volunteering means an opportunity to connect with the London community and get to know your new home. 

On Orientation Serves Day, you and your orientation leaders (sophs) are transported to partner locations for the afternoon to support the great work happening at non-profit organizations across the region. Understand some of the critical issues that exist in London and society, including physical and mental health, environment, poverty, and more. 

When: Saturday September 7, 2019, 1:00pm - 4:00pm
Where: Anywhere in the London area
