New Student Orientation (NSO)
New Student Orientation is a four-day experience required for all new first-year students. Once move-in wraps up, you and your new classmates (residential and commuter) will transition to NSO, which begins with check-in at the Rec Plex. Your parents will have the opportunity to attend the parent orientation program which is separate but takes place concurrently.

The family program is a two-day experience that begins after move-in. The program and runs concurrently to the student orientation program and is designed to educate family members about the resources available to their student and answer questions that family members might have about topics such as academics, health and safety, and student support services.
