Welcome Week is the first week where first year students are welcomed into the community at St. Thomas University. Organized by the Students’ Union through our Welcome Week Chair, works in partnership with Residence Life and the University Administration to plan this a week of exciting events. Welcome Week is a week full of activities that are both fun and informative. Sometimes they’re more fun than informative, but that’s alright too.
Shinerama is also a part of the Welcome Week. It is Canada’s largest postsecondary fundraiser. Shinerama is part of Cystic Fibrosis Canada, which is an organization that has been raising funds for the fight against cystic fibrosis since 1960 and has contributed $150 million to leading research and care. As a result, Canada has one of the world’s highest survival rates for people with Cystic Fibrosis.
