NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION (NSO)
Tuesday, January 22 - Saturday, January 26
Welcome new students of Hope International University! We are inviting you and your family to come and be a part of the Spring 2013 NSO experience. This is a great opportunity to get everyone prepared for this new and exciting adventure while getting plugged into the campus community. Come and experience what it means to be a part of the Hope family. It all begins at 9 a.m., January 22, with Check-In at the Lawson-Fulton Student Center. We will see you there!
NSO exists to help and support new students as they transition into the Hope community. A number of activities and seminars are planned to prepare new students for their experience at Hope by exposing them to educational opportunities, helping them develop quality relationships, and encouraging them to access campus resources. Orientation is also the time for new students to celebrate as they take this next step, receive instruction and guidance as they transition into the Hope community, including academic advisement in preparation for registration, and much more. NSO strives to enhance student success, campus life, community development, and university-wide excellence.
Please be aware that the family portion of the NSO experience ends Tuesday, January 22 at 1:30 p.m.
Classes begin on Wednesday, January 23 with NSO activities continuing through Saturday, January 26.
