What to Expect from New Student Orientation

What to Expect from New Student Orientation

by Erin Hoffman and Derrick Gulley, Jr. 

New Student Orientation (NSO) lays the foundation for your student’s smooth transition into college. These events (offered in-person on Friday, June 7, and virtually on Monday, June 10) provide important information and help students and families establish connections for the fall 2024 semester and beyond. 

At NSO, students will have the opportunity to learn from student-leaders about campus resources, tips for college success, and suggestions for getting involved and making Nebraska Wesleyan home. They’ll also have a chance to make connections with peers. Maybe they’ll meet a classmate from their Archway Seminar or a potential neighbor in their residence hall. 

Parents and families will learn helpful details to prepare for the fall. They’ll hear from staff about student success, health and wellness support, student records and financial aid.  They’ll also learn important details about living on campus or commuting to NWU.

Students can register for an NSO session via the NSO Registration Form. Please contact your admissions counselor if you or your student have questions. We look forward to seeing you in June!
