Welcome to the strangest semester of your life!

Engage with us online
We are hosting online events through our social media channels and through Zoom to offer you quality, premium entertainment while you are studying from home. Everyone can participate in events, but only students who have paid the CSI events fee are eligible to win the awesome prizes we are offering all semester long.
Stay tuned to our social media channels, mobile app and web calendar to stay up to date with what’s going on.
Check out our events calendar and join in!
Through this semester, our events are being hosted through our social media channels. Keep up to date with ways you can join in and own your student experience!
Check out our online calendar for more information on our regular events like:

Just because we are social distancing doesn’t mean we have to be distant socially! (That makes sense, right?)
Get involved this semester and upgrade your student experience by becoming a member of the International Student Advisory Council (ISAC) or by becoming a Student Rep! You can also keep up your motivation and connect with others (socially distant of course) through clubs!
Earn Credit while you lead!
Every component of the CSI Leadership and Career Development Program earns you a credit on Conestoga College’s Co-Curricular Record (CCR).

Dialogue is an online platform that allows you, as well as your spouse and children who are also enrolled in CIHIP, to connect virtually with nurses and physicians via a mobile or web app from anywhere in Canada, free of charge.
Any Conestoga College student can request a telephone appointment with a doctor from the on-campus Medical Care Clinic.
