New Student Orientation (NSO)

Commuter Student Information

It is important to us that new commuter students are able to fully participate in New Student Orientation. As non-residential students, it is often more difficult for commuter students to connect with the college by meeting people and participating in campus events. So, NSO would like to invite commuter students to be our guests during NSO. We will provide meals and housing accommodations on campus, free of charge.

You are welcome to stay with us from the afternoon of Wednesday, August 28th until 11am on Saturday, August 31st. On Sunday, September 1st, continuing students will return to the Residence Halls at 9am. However, NSO events will continue Sunday into the evenings, and we encourage you to still participate in those activities.

We hope you will decide to stay with us during NSO. To register, please complete the registration form below by August 16th, 2019. Remember to bring a sleeping bag or twin xl bedding, pillow, towel, and personal care items with you during your stay. If you have any questions, please contact Franchesca Spann, Student Director of New Student Orientation at or 503-768-7182.
