New Student Orientation at Nipissing

First-year students attending Nipissing University in the fall are getting the jump on their studies this week the university hosts New Student Orientation (NSO) Monday, July 6th to Friday July 10.

​NSO provides first-year students the chance to discover essential information about Nipissing. Students will have the opportunity to meet with their future professors and receive an overview of the academic expectations and requirements unique to Nipissing University. They will be able to discuss their particular program with academic advisors to ensure that their course selections are accurate and complete.

Each NSO participant will also be provided time to talk to current students about the transition to university to help prepare for classes in September. In addition, students and their families receive a tour of the campus, residences and learn about the support services, resources, educational and extra-curricular opportunities available to them as Nipissing students.

Each NSO day also includes student and parent sessions in which current students and university administrators answer questions about Nipissing University, North Bay and first year experiences and expectations.

NSO days are organized around the academic programs available at Nipissing. This allows incoming students to meet their fellow classmates early and make a connection with some of the people they will be sitting beside during their lectures this September.

“For me, helping with NSO after graduating is having the Nipissing University experience come full-circle. My journey here began with New Student Orientation and this an opportunity for me to now give back,” says NSO leader and graduate, Aaron Brown. “I hope someone participating in NSO will go home knowing they belong at Nipissing University. I want incoming students to feel as though they are already part of the community and that they are prepared for their new adventure.”
