New Student Orientation (NSO) is an integral part of the college experience and it is our goal to assist students in making their transition to college life as informative, seamless and effective as possible. It is designed to both challenge and support students in their academic endeavors. This year's orientation date is August 17, 2016. Throughout your orientation you will hear from various university departments, tour the campus, and have the opportunity to complete any unfinished business regarding your admission. This is a great way to meet other students, develop friendships and get ready to start classes this fall!
