New Student Orientation

Your NSO experience will get you ready for move-in, classes and everything that comes after. We can't wait to see you on campus!

Friday, August 23 to Sunday, August 25

Incoming students living on campus will move-in on Friday, August 23. New Student Orientation will run from Friday, August 23 to Sunday, August 25.

The first official event of Orientation is move-in, where move-in crews will be ready to help you get settled into your new home away from home. Residence halls open at 8:00 AM, so we’ll see you there bright and early!

Note: You may not move in on August 24 or 25—you must move in on the morning of August 23.

Orientation Schedules

In August, we will link the full schedules for Fall Student and Family Orientation here, so stay tuned. This will include full daily schedules, and even a helpful checklist so you can make sure you get everything done that you need to.

Here’s a sneak peak at some (but not all) of the weekend’s highlights!

  • Lake Champlain boat cruise
  • Lunch with faculty and Deans
  • Fun in the IDX Student Life Center, featuring the Grind Coffeehouse (live music!)
  • Games on the green
  • Movie under the stars
  • And so much more!
