New Student Orientation Overview
New Student Orientation (NSO) 2014 will be held from Tuesday, September 16, to Sunday, September 21, 2014, the day before Autumn Quarter classes begin. NSO is required for all new students and you are expected to participate fully in NSO activities, which will take place from morning to late evening each day. NSO is designed to provide you with an introduction to the wide array of academic, intellectual, leadership, cultural, and social experiences available to you at Stanford. It is also an important time for forming relationships with your classmates, dormmates, and other members of the Stanford community. During these six days, there will be many engaging programs to attend, but you will also have time to settle into your room and prepare for classes.
We are currently updating our online content and will begin posting information about NSO 2014 in May when we launch the Approaching Stanford process for the Class of 2018 and new transfers.
