Saying goodbye to our international students, and welcoming our incoming international students
Next week we sadly have to say goodbye to some of our international students who are returning to their home country and going back to their home school. We have enjoyed having you here in Burnaby and hope that over the past 5 months each and every one of you has had a memorable experience in Burnaby and the Greater Vancouver area. No doubt many lifelong friendships have been formed. We wish you every success in your future studies, wherever they may lead you. Don’t forget us.
For new students, orientation starts February 2 with many of you arriving January 31. This is a big step to take, as many before you have taken, to come to a new country on your own where so much will be different. Be assured you soon settle in, make new friends, and feel a part of our Burnaby community. We hope you will join in many of the exciting cultural activities the International Office and your school arranges for you, as well as pursue your academic goals.
We thank all of you, departing students and arriving students, for choosing Burnaby for your study abroad program.
