New Student Orientation Overview
**New Student Orientation (NSO) will take place from Tuesday, September 15, through Sunday, September 20, 2015. We will be updating our online content and provide more information in May 2015 when we launch the Approaching Stanford process for the Class of 2019 and new transfers. Until then, you are welcome to browse the information below about NSO 2014.** 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.
