Rain won't stop TRU event

The new student orientation at Thompson Rivers University will carry on despite the rain, only inside the gym instead of in the Hillside Stadium.

Tuesday's weather forecast calls for a 90 per cent chance of precipitation with up to 15 millimetres of rain expected. 

The rainy forecast will not dampen TRU's enthusiasm to welcome nearly 1,500 new students to Thompson Rivers University at TRU Discover, Tuesday at 9 a.m. 

Although the venue is changing, the orientation itself will be bigger and better than ever.  

New TRU students can expect a fun, exciting and smooth transition to university. 

"New students are going to be blown away with the high energy activities, games and resources that will help them be successful during their university career," said Chris Adam, TRU Dean of Students." I look forward to seeing everyone at the TRU GymTuesday, Sept 2 at 9 a.m. for TRU Discover Day."
