This year Algoma University’s Frosh Week is titled “Trail Blazers: The Possibilities Are Endless” and will take place from Tues. Sept. 3rd until Sat. Sept. 7th. There is something for everyone to participate in! This not only is a great time to get to know fellow classmates and current students, it will also provide students with the opportunity to get to know the staff and faculty at Algoma U! For more information as well as a downloadable schedule of events, you can visit Algoma U’s Frosh Week webpage here.
