Undergraduate First Year Orientation


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 orientation. 

For this reason, we offer several types of orientation programs to assist with the transition to NSU, whether you are coming from high school, another college, or the workforce.
