Plunge into Public Health

Discover public health in action

Plunge activities allow our new students to learn about the community, meet and network with their classmates, and gain invaluable insight into the different disciplines of the dynamic field of public health, before they start their programs.

You will be able to choose one activity from each session as part of your orientation to the school, the field, and the city. 


Please note that we will make every effort to place you in the plunge you choose during orientation registration. Space is limited, so we encourage you to register early.
