New Student Orientation

Held just before the start of classes in August, New Student Orientation introduces you to the academic and social communities on campus. NSO begins when you move in, with activities in small groups to introduce you to your peers, Wave Leaders, and Resident Advisors. Throughout the five day experience, you will meet some of the faculty, staff, and peer leaders who work to make your transition to Tulane an easy one.
