New Student Orientation


Welcome to The Pride!


New Student Orientation (NSO) is an event designed to help students make a successful transition to University life.  We are excited that you have made the decision to attend UAFS, and we look forward to getting to know you at NSO!


New Student Orientation is mandatory for all first-time entering Freshmen.  Research shows that students who attend NSO have higher first-semester GPA's and feel a deeper connection to campus.  Your success is important to us, and during NSO, you will engage with Deans, Faculty, Staff and Students that are all dedicated to your SUCCESS!



Registration for students who plan to attend Fall 2018 will begin February 2018.
