O Week 2019

Orientation Week
O Week is the biggest event of the academic year and is part of the BSA’s social program. This is where lifelong friendships are often forged and it goes a long way to help you establish the support groups needed to get you through the tough periods ahead. 

The BSA strives to offer a diversity of entertainment and activities so that all students are included in the fun.
