Hello prospective froshees! Welcome to the SFU Health Sciences Faculty!

 

It can be quite a jump from high school to university. Thus, HSUSU offers opportunities for first year Health Science students to help ease them into university smoothly. Newly admitted Health Science (H-SCI) Candidates may learn and grow personally and professionally, become familiar with their program, gain insight from fellow health science students, and more. 

HSUSU impacts first year HSCI undergraduates through FROSH! FROSH is an important event in the life of a student as it is an opportunity to demonstrate the welcoming and inclusive community that the Faculty of Health Sciences at Simon Fraser university has to offer.

  1. What can I expect at HSCI FROSH 2019?

  3. What is included in the FROSH 2019 fee?
    As a FROSH participant, you will receive a FROSH 2019 t-shirt, an awesome swag bag full of campus resources and goodies, and food for the night!

  4. How late is too late to register?
    Registration closes on Friday, September 6, 2019 (exactly a week before FROSH).

  5. What should I wear/bring to FROSH?
    Wear comfortable clothes and shoes and be mindful of the weather. Please do not bring any valuables, alcohol, illicit drugs, or weapons with you. HSUSU/SFU is not liable for any lost or damaged items.

  6. How is FROSH different from Orientation?
    Orientation is used more as a way to get you comfortable the with the campus and show you around. At FROSH we are particularly focused on bringing HSCI students together through fun activities and create bonding experiences for you as a new HSCI student. This is also a great way to network with more people in your faculty and if you signed up for a peer mentor, this will be one of the first times you’ll meet them!

  7. What is the difference between HSCI FROSH and the Science FROSH? Are they the same thing?
    No, they are not the same! This is the 7th year that the Health Sciences faculty is hosting the FROSH event. In previous years, HSCI students joined the Science FROSH. Now, the HSCI FROSH is specifically for those who are entering the Faculty of Health Sciences in their first year! The entire event has been planned to show our new students some of the most distinctive aspects of our faculty and to bring our students together!

  8. Can I still attend if I have classes at SFU Surrey or SFU Vancouver campus?
    Yes! The HSCI FROSH is open to ALL students entering the Faculty of Health Sciences. This means students from both SFU Surrey, Vancouver, and Burnaby. We do understand that since FROSH is being held at SFU Burnaby it may be out of the way for those of you in Surrey or Vancouver. We still encourage you to come as we strive to build a unified HSCI student body regardless of which campus you attend.

  9. What if I have a class that conflicts with HSCI FROSH 2019?
    We have tried to plan FROSH at a time that would be accessible to the majority of first year HSCI students. Unfortunately this means that if you do have a class conflict you may not be able to attend FROSH.
    Those who have classes that end later on can email us to see if they would be missing any major activities, and you are still more than welcome to partake in FROSH after your class!
    Alternatively, there will be several upcoming events after FROSH that will allow you to get involved and bond with others as well. Stay tuned for those upcoming events by checking our website, and your e-mails!

  10. What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?
    Blusson Hall is located right beside the upper (second) bus loop area at Cornerstone/Univercity. Please refer to the directions on the SFU main website for driving and public transportation directions: http://www.sfu.ca/campuses/maps-and-directions/burnaby-map.html.
