New Student Orientation

*Required for all incoming freshmen*

Mark your calendars!   This Fall's New Student Orientation will take place August 29th - September 1st.

On behalf of the student orientation leaders, orientation assistants and Niagara administration  who make up the New Student Orientation (NSO) staff, WELCOME to campus as the newest members of the Niagara University student body! This website will be the new student hub for important information about next fall's New Student Orientation!

The New Student Orientation program is for ALL new students, including residents and commuters and is a requirement for everyone! What better way to begin your Niagara careers than beginning all together as one! NSO is a great follow-up for our incoming freshmen from your summer orientation experience.  

The goal of NSO is to provide you the opportunity to experience what it means to be a NU student. Through NSO, you will develop a deeper understanding of Niagara’s core values, become acquainted with your surroundings and meet your classmates and other members of the Niagara University community. All of this is designed to help you gain some Purple Pride!

NSO begins with first-year student residence hall move-in  and commuter  check-in and lunch in the Gallagher Center.  NSO continues for all new freshmen commuters and residents, right through  Labor Day weekend. There will be sessions on academic policy and student affairs resources, as well many fun events and campus traditions to participate in. One of them, our New Student Convocation, is open to parents/family members and will occur  in the Gallagher Center gym.

In anticipation of your arrival to campus, you are encouraged to “Like” Niagara University on Facebook. You are also encouraged to join the Niagara University Class of 2018 Facebook group. It is a great place to meet other new students and ask questions about your upcoming NU college experience.

New Student Orientation is designed to get you off to a good start in your life inside and outside of the classroom here at Niagara!
