WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
New Student Orientation
New Student Orientation (NSO) is for all new students registered at uLethbridge who will begin studies in January 2018 - while it is optional, you'll be sad if you don't attend! At NSO, you will get a feel for what will be expected of you as a first year student, meet with faculty and staff, become familiar with campus resources and, of course, meet other students new to uLethbridge! NSO will give you a great head start for your experience as a uLethbridge student! You’ll meet some great people in your faculty, learn what to expect in the classroom, and tour the campus so you can feel comfortable and confident before your first day of classes! Don’t bring a lunch, it’s on us.
Does it cost anything to attend New Student Orientation (NSO)?
No! Students and their family can attend NSO free of charge. We only ask you come ready for fun and informative sessions that will prepare students for their future endeavors.
Is New Student Orientation mandatory?
New Student Orientation is not mandatory at the University of Lethbridge; however, we highly recommend joining us on both days to gather important information from various service areas and faculties throughout uLethbridge.
Are there orientations for graduate students? International students? Transfer students? FNMI students?
While each respective area may offer their own version of orientation, we have worked hard with each area to offer programming for all of our new students within NSO on top of their own specific programming. Orientation activities that are specific to certain groups of students will be communicated via FNMI student services, the School of Graduate Studies and the International Centre.
Can I bring someone to the event?
Yes! We encourage students to bring a family member with them as we will have information sessions that they may find valuable. However, please note that there is no family-specific programming slated for Spring NSO, as the focus is for students.
Where do I park at uLethbridge?
Free parking will be available on Jan. 5 ONLY in Lot E. There will be signage guiding you to the correct lot.
What’s happening at lunch time?
Lunch will be provided for everyone at the event. If you have any dietary restrictions please let us know when you register for the event.
Will services on campus be open for NSO?
Business as usual will commence on Tuesday, January 2nd so, yes!
