NSO Schedule

New Student Orientation 2020 Schedule

The NSO schedule takes inspiration from the Block Plan and will give you a taste of a "typical" class day; required sessions are offered each morning and the rest of the day is open for you to choose your own adventure - get connected to campus resources and peers, relax in your room, or walk around campus. As a complement to August NSO programming, incoming students can participate in Choose Your Own Adventure sessions and informal meet-and-greets with returning students over the summer. 

Fall New Student Orientation 2020 (NSO) will take place on-campus and in accordance with CDC, federal, local, state, and campus COVID-19 guidelines/precautions; remote students will be able to participate fully as all offerings will be virtual via Zoom.

August 13 - 17, 2020 - Extended Move-In 

  • 7 pm Daily: Required Hall Meetings for students on arrival day

August 17 - 22, 2020: NSO & Priddy Experience

Due to new testing procedures and enhanced socially distancing protocol, the NSO and Priddy Experience will now be delivered virtually until all new student test results are returned. New students who will be in residency for Blocks 1 & 2 are still expected to arrive to campus for their assigned move-in and testing slot so that they are ready for the first day of classes. When negative test results are returned, enhanced socially distancing guidelines will be relaxed but you will still be expected to wear a mask, monitor for symptoms, maintain 6 feet distance with those not in your household, and avoid crowds. 

For students attending remotely from off-campus, required sessions are will be recorded and made available on the college's Vimeo channel for viewing should students have been unable to attend live in-person or online.

In order to successfully complete all required components of NSO, all students, regardless of residency location. will complete brief quizzes on required sessions in Canvas. 

Each morning, a daily schedule of events with Zoom access links will be sent out to new students so you know where to show up and what is on the agenda each day.
