Last month, Miranda Cabiladas, a master of business administration student at the New York Institute of Technology (NYIT), helped to welcome more than 200 new students to the institution’s ever-growing Vancouver campus during its 2018 Spring Student Orientation.

“The turnout was a lot more than we anticipated,” says Cabiladas, who works as a student assistant under the supervision of NYIT’s academic support and student life coordinator, planning, organizing, promoting and implementing campus activities. “Around 180 students turned up during orientation itself, while the rest arrived afterwards.”

A two-day event, the orientation welcomed students to NYIT, helped them to register for classes, introduced international students to life in Vancouver, and ensured that their transition to the school and the city was as seamless as possible, says Cabiladas.

“The orientation was a success,” she says. “The reaction from new students has been positive. Even though we welcomed more than what we expected, we were able to help them register to their classes and assist them with whatever help they needed.”

NYIT prides itself on being a global campus, with locations in places such as New York City, Abu Dhabi and Jonesboro, Ark.
