Saturday, September 3, 2016 @ 6:54 AM

Prince George, B.C. The University of Northern BC   has the welcome mat out this weekend for  students and  their parents as tomorrow is move in day at the student residences.“Our residences are about 99.9% full”  says UNBC President Daniel Weeks.   He says those not staying on campus,  have been able to  find  accommodation in other  parts of the city of Prince George ” We’re hearing that students are  finding housing,   We’ve  seen no particular challenges in finding housing.  Again , that’s one of the great things about living in Prince George, there’s  opportunities off campus as well as on.”

Tomorrow’s move in day starts at 8 in the morning and will include a residence welcome lunch from 11-1 followed by  dining hall tours,  a welcome to parents,  a  residence community  dinner,  then mandatory building and floor meetings followed by  an evening of fun events .

But the welcome  events don’t stop on Sunday.

Registration  is set for Labour Day,  and that day  will  offer tours of the  City  as well as  campus  tours  so students know the locations of their classrooms.  Students  can attend a session on Tuesday  to meet the faculty,  before  taking part in a free BBQ lunch,  which is followed by  an official welcoming ceremony  Tuesday afternoon.

At CNC, the orientation and welcome week  is highlighted with a  Toonie BBQ on Tuesday,  and a  Student Life expo on  Thursday.
