Spring New Student Orientation

Saturday, January 12, 2019

Orientation Schedule

We look forward to welcoming you to our community and preparing you for the journey ahead!

New Student Orientation (NSO), required for all new students, begins on Saturday, January 12 and continues through Sunday, January 13.  Sessions on Saturday, January 12 are mandatory.  NSO is designed as a way for new, transfer, and international 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, you will feel:

A sense of belonging
A sense of place
A sense of connection
(and that we are excited to welcome you to Redlands!)

During NSO, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Participate in a personal one-on one meeting with your academic advisor
  • Register for Spring and May Term courses
  • Enjoy a taste of Bon Appetite (our food service) via lunch with orientation leaders, your family and campus community members
  • Learn about academic policy and campus procedures
  • Pick up your Bulldog ID

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 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.

NOTE: If a conflict prevents you from participating in NSO, please contact Admissions at 909.748.8074 to determine your status and your ability to register for the spring semester.
