New Student Orientation (NSO) is an important experience for all first year students, regardless of academic affiliation or major. At NSO, you will have the opportunity to become familiar with campus resources and make connections with current students, faculty, and staff before beginning classes.
In addition, our dedicated team of student Orientation Leaders will serve as your personal guide, share their experiences and help acclimate you to Rutgers University-New Brunswick.
Your action-packed NSO schedule will include a campus tour excursion, a live game show, campus resource fair, interactive workshops, small group activities, an evening social and choose-your-own sessions covering a range of topics including academics, study abroad, Greek life and Leadership opportunities. Collect information, win prizes, make friends, and get excited about beginning your journey as a Scarlet Knight!
All new students are expected to attend an NSO session.
