This program is designed to assist you in making a smooth transition to university life at NSU! Orientation is the foundation of your college experience.

All new undergraduate students at NSU are REQUIRED to attend ONE (1) orientation. 

For the past months, NSU has worked tirelessly to look at every facet of student life and determine how we make fall semester both safe and meaningful.
