New Student Orientation (NSO) is a wonderful opportunity to have your questions answered and start navigating the logistics associated with starting college. It's a time to discover new places, meet new friends, and develop new interests.

Our Peer Leaders will guide you through an interactive two-day program which will allow you to learn more and customize your own unique college experience.
