New Student Orientation at University Park

Congratulations on your admission to Penn State University Park!

New Student Orientation (NSO) at University Park is a two-day program aimed at providing you, and your family, with an introduction to life on campus, in the classroom, and in State College. All new students are expected to attend NSO. A companion Parent & Family program is available for any parents or family members that will be traveling to University Park with you for NSO. 

First-year students admitted to University Park for spring 2017 will receive information about New Student Orientation beginning in November 2016. 

We look forward to seeing you soon at University Park!
