New Student Orientation

What is New Student Orientation?

New Student Orientation (NSO) is a week-long celebration of all things Trinity. It's designed to make you feel right at home as a member of the newest class of Tigers. All incoming students participate in both required and optional events that enhance your social and academic development. Families are also welcomed into the Trinity community during the first day of NSO.

The program is designed to take care of details like placement exams, advising, and registration, but is also geared around acquainting you with campus life, assisting you with the transition to the academic rigor of Trinity, and of course, building community among your fellow classmates. Come prepared to participate in key Trinity traditions from the start. Throughout NSO, you'll hear us reference the theme of  'claim your education'. We believe that you should actively seek opportunities to learn and engage in our vibrant campus life.

NSO begins after residence hall move-in. You can check out the NSO schedule by clicking the appropriate link in the left-hand menu.
