New Student Orientation and Family Programs (NSOFP) welcomes, prepares, and engages new students and their families in their transition to Rutgers University - New Brunswick.

Orientation Programs

Welcome to the Scarlet Knight Family! We’re looking forward to meeting you at an upcoming orientation program.

Get Involved and Stay Connected

One of the best parts of the college experience is making new friends and connections that can last a lifetime.

All first-year and transfer students are required to complete two online education modules.

NSO Serves the Community

The Snack Pack Project provides 25,000 bags of healthy snacks for the Play S.A.F.E. Program. Snack packs are made by incoming Scarlet Knights during New Student Orientation.

Over 2,000 children ages 6-12 attend Play S.A.F.E., most of them food insecure. Meaning they don't receive enough nutrients to lead a healthy life.
