Yes. It's very common for people from Waterloo to blow off frosh week to go drinking. They're such party animals.

Sarcasm? Isn't it a well known fact all the partygoers go to 'loo? It's why they have such a lively campus.


edit: I'm just exaggerating stereotypes btw OP, i'm sure frosh will be fun at UW like it is at most universities. and the general belief is "don't miss frosh week or you'll regret it", so i wouldn't be concerned about that many people skipping it.

The party going crowd does not go to University of Waterloo, maybe Laurier. Waterloo is known for being one of the least partying schools.

The activities will start on move in day and just continue throughout the day. The first day is usually very casual. So as long as you're there by the time everyone is expected to move in and be settled then you should be fine. Probably early afternoon on the first day. There is more detailed information on the orientation website where you can print out a personalized schedule.
