Making the transition to college is an exciting time but can also be challenging without a little guidance.

For the spring semester, we will be offering a New Student Orientation on Thursday, January 6, 2022, for undergrad students admitted for the spring 2022 semester.

What to Expect at New Student Orientation:

  • Opportunities to connect with future classmates and explore your campus
  • An introduction to NSU student services and resources
