The Corpus Christi Experience

Your College Experience Starts at Corpus Christi

There’s so much more to your college experience than studying – although that’s a very important part! We work hard to give our students the best college experience possible. Many of our graduates tell us that our welcoming and inclusive community–both inside and outside of class–was the best part of being at Corpus Christi.

Personalized Advising and Preview Nights

Your experience starts before you even begins your studies with us. When you’re considering which college or university to choose, we offer personalized Advising Services to help you figure out your academic and career pathway. You can attend Preview Nights to get a feel for the College, and even shadow a student to get a first-hand experience of life at Corpus Christi.

Orientation Week 

Just before classes begin, we host a fun Orientation Week to help you break the ice with your future classmates, find your way around the campus, and figure out everything you need to know to succeed in college.

Student Orientation, Advising and Registration (SOAR)

At our springtime SOAR event, we invite applicants to attend a special evening to hear more about our academic offerings, success, and leadership programs – and how to get the most from your post-secondary education. You’ll learn how to register for the courses you want and need, and how to take advantage of the many optional activities we offer, such as service learning trips, campus ministry events, clubs, and much more.

Experience Success 

Once your studies have started, we offer the Student Success Program – a set of workshops to help you learn key academic skills. This helps ensure you make a successful transition to university life. If you have any concerns about your progress or want to change your academic or career plan, you can get in touch with your personal Advisor at any time.

What sets us apart

Our intimate campus and small classes mean you’ll be a name, not a number. You’ll be on a first-name basis with your classmates, professors, and many of the staff members at the College. We will continue to support you throughout your time with us by offering helpful services and programs to encourage academic success and social engagement. You’ll be just steps from UBC, which means you can take advantage of many of the services and amenities UBC offers, including access studies, libraries, clubs, intramurals, and much more. Need a place to study? Study in our quiet Study Hall, one of our informal learning spaces, or a group study area. Need a place to hang out between classes? Check out Plato’s Cave, where you can study, grab a coffee, and play a rousing game of foosball.

Experience the World

You’ll learn critical leadership skills by participating in Voices of Hope, our student-led Social Justice Symposium, our INSPIRE Leadership Certificate program, and our service trips to downtown Vancouver and to the Northwest Territories.
