NSO Schedule

Tentative New Student Orientation 2021 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 - get connected to campus resources and peers, relax in your room, or walk around campus. 

Fall New Student Orientation 2021 (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 in many aspects of programming as required and select other sessions will be virtual via Zoom.

    August 20 - 28, 2021: NSO & Priddy Experience 

    The college is working to solidify our Fall arrival and testing procedures and plans to share these with new students in late May. In the meantime, we are planning for both virtual and in-person components of the NSO schedule in order to accommodate social distancing, capacity, and testing needs as well as meet local regulations and campus protocols. 

    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 as well as pre-NSO modules included in the Deadlines Checklist.
