Learn about student life from current students!

New Student Orientation (NSO) launches each school year with a full schedule of fun events meant to get new students used to ݮƵ, both academically and socially. The week is led by current students, so you’ll get the best information straight from the people who know student life best.

It’s a great way to get off on the right foot, and you’ll make friendships that will last a lifetime!

Once you apply to be a student you’ll get a reminder to sign up for NSO -- be sure to take part and make the most of your university experience!
