Scheduled to begin at 10:00 am on Sunday, January 7, our New Student Orientation (NSO) is designed as a way for new students and their family members to begin to feel connected with our diverse community of learners. Our goal is that by the end of the day, participants will feel:
A sense of belonging
A sense of place
A sense of connection
By day’s end students will have met with their advisor, registered for class, shared lunch with orientation leaders, met campus staff and administrators, learned about academic policy and campus procedures and secured their Bulldog ID (Don’t forget to say “cheese!”).
Faculty, staff and student leaders will guide participants through the day, providing insights, sharing stories, helping students register, answering questions, minimizing wonder, and helping grow confidence in the decision to join the University of Redland’s community.
NSO has been developed with student success in mind; that is why attendance is required. Students who will be living on-campus can check-in at their residence hall lobby beginning at 8:00 am; check-in for the NSO program will begin at 9:15 am in the Hunsaker University Center, which is adjacent to the Armacost Library and across from The Commons, our on-campus dining facility.
Please know that U of R welcomes and encourages parents, guardians and family members to attend NSO. Educational sessions will be provided with them in mind and they too will share lunch with orientation leaders, administrators and others.
