Orientation at Michigan State University

You are officially a member of the Michigan State University community! We are excited for you to participate in New Student Orientation (NSO) as you prepare to begin as a Spartan. Our orientation programs are designed to connect incoming students and their families/caregiver(s) with resources and opportunities, begin to assist students in their transition to the university and educate and empower students and family/caregiver(s). We are excited to embark on this journey with you!
