NSOR helps incoming students prepare for success

New Student Orientation and Registration (NSOR) schedules have been carefully crafted to help incoming students prepare for a successful college experience. It’s an opportunity for Saint Mary’s University to officially welcome incoming students as Cardinals! At NSOR, they will learn about the many opportunities to get involved on campus, and the many resources that will help them succeed at Saint Mary’s.

Why is attending NSOR so important? It’s a time to register for classes, take placement exams, have ID photos taken, attend the resource fair, and learn more about academic advising, residence life and campus technology.

Don’t think we’ve forgotten about parents; at NSOR, parents are invited to attend informational break-out sessions about athletics, tuition and billing, disability services, career services, health and safety, campus ministry, and the Student Success Center. Parents are also invited to follow the Saint Mary’s of Minnesota Parents Facebook.

It’s also a great opportunity to meet other new students, as well as faculty and staff.

2014 NSOR dates are:
Saturday, June 14
Monday, June 16 *Full
Saturday, July 19
Friday, August 1
Friday, August 22  (late confirmations, transfers and students coming from a distance, no overnight accommodations for families)

For information, contact the Office of Student Activities at Ext. 1648. Please make every effort to welcome these students and families and assist them with questions.
