A freshman orientation program was developed to assist first year students in adjusting to student life at the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College. The orientation program consisted of an orientation package, small student led discussion groups, discussions on chiropractic education with members of the Board of Governors and the faculty, a tour of the building, an introduction to the library, a seminar on study skills and informal social gatherings. The orientation program was positively evaluated by all students. Students met colleagues with whom they later became friends, and were exposed to coping skills which proved useful in helping them adjust to student life.
