    New Student Orientation

    Dean's New Student Orientation (NSO) program is designed to prepare you for a successful introduction to college.  NSO is a program that will allow students and their families to sample many aspects of Dean College. Along with fun activities, NSO (and ISO for international students) offers helpful workshops and informative presentations to make the transition to college as easy as possible.

    The program will familiarize you and your family with the academic support, technology services, and residence life programs available on campus. You'll also have a chance to meet our faculty and staff, connect with other Dean students, and make lots of new friends!
