New Students

New Student Orientation 2020

Get off to a great start!

Key things to do

  • Mark your calendar: Attend in-person orientation on campus starting with dinner Thursday, August 13, through Saturday, August 15 — for both residential and commuter students. 
  • Complete self-paced, flexible online orientation components in the first half of August, before arrival. When presented with the login screen, use your myNaz username and password.
  • Living on campus: See new-student move-in information.
  • Be ready to connect with your orientation leaders (you’ll have two) — and your fellow students. Your orientation leaders will email you by the end of July to introduce themselves!

Key things to know

  • You’ll meet other new students, learn about campus resources, get to know your way around, have fun, get customized info and tips (for commuters, for residential students, for student-athletes), connect with your advisor, start your first class, learn health and safety information, and more.
  • COVID-19 safety protocols will be in place for all students and employees. We’ll share those details before you arrive.
