Cultivate 2019 will be an awesome time to gain your bearings at TyndaleU. We'll help you navigate your new surroundings, all the new people, and your many new experiences. "Cultivate 2019" will be filled with friends, ideas, sights, and the start of a new journey. It’s designed to help you get to know Tyndale, begin relationships with the incoming class and student leaders, and discover stimulating possibilities for your undergrad experience.
While orientation to TyndaleU continues through most of the first semester, September 2 and 3 are vitally important for all new students to TyndaleU. Please check out the schedule that has been designed with you in mind. And if you have any questions, gsweetman [at] tyndale [dot] ca (please let us know).
