What will my Spring New Student Orientation experience be like?
Your Spring New Student Orientation experience will take place in phases that will occur virtually but consist of both asynchronous and synchronous components.
Your first part of the Spring NSO experience will be available on December 1, 2021 in Desire2Learn, or D2L. This asynchronous content will help prepare you for the rest of your NSO experience and beginning your first semester.
In D2L, you will also review information about your College/major that will prepare you for your academic advising appointment. Once you complete your D2L content, you will be able to get more information about your virtual academic advising appointment. Your College will send you more information about your academic advising appointment via your MSU email once you have completed your D2L content.
