New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation (NSO) occurs before the Fall and Spring semesters to introduce new students to many aspects of the University including student life, academic policies and the student code.  The goal of each New Student Orientation session is to make our students feel right at home the moment they step on campus.  New Student Orientation is mandatory.

Our New Student Orientation program is run by a dedicated staff of professionals and extensively trained student leaders.  Each student leader is hand selected and knows a wealth of information about the University.
