FA18 New Student Orientation
August 16 @ 2:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Welcome New Students!
New Student Orientation is required for all new undergraduate and graduate students who live within a fifty-mile radius of the campus (NOTE: this includes both residential and online students who live within a fifty-mile radius of the campus). Registration for New Student Orientation will begin in the Chapel Welcome Center at 2:30pm. During the course of this event, you will not only have the opportunity to handle any outstanding administrative tasks, but you will also receive important information and have an opportunity to meet faculty, staff, and friends.
Please dress business casual (e.g. men: dress pants and collared shirt; women: slacks and nice blouse), as you will be taking your Student ID pictures, and we will be holding a nice dinner during the course of the event. You will also have an opportunity to enter a drawing for a $200 gift card to the Sword & Trowel, and all new students will receive a small gift from the office of Student Life & Events to welcome you to the Midwestern community.
Are there things you still need to do in order to be ready for the start of the semester? Make plans now to arrive early in order to enroll, pay your bill, get help logging onto your student portal/email, ask housing questions, and get your ID card and/or vehicle permit! Offices will be open and personnel will be standing by to assist you from 1pm to 2:30pm. Check in at the Welcome Center of the chapel building, and our staff will be there to assist you in getting to the appropriate offices. This is the only opportunity you will have to handle business at NSO, so please take advantage of this time if there is anything you need to take care of!
Childcare is available for children ages 12 and under, so be sure to register your children as soon as possible to ensure that they have a spot.
Please register for New Student Orientation by August 14.
