New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation (NSO) provides meaningful programs and opportunities to support the transition and engagement of new students and their families to the academic, cultural, and social environment of Presbyterian College. NSO will take place Wednesday, August 14 to Monday, August 19.

Orienting Students for Life at PC

If you’re a new student, participating in New Student Orientation is your opportunity to connect with students, faculty, and staff before beginning classes this fall.

During NSO, you’ll attend events and programs to help you transition to life at PC. Move-In Day is an exciting time when new students move into their new home. You will meet your Resident Assistant and students on your floor, and you’ll learn what it means to live together as a community.

Service is a big part of the culture at PC. During NSO, you’ll live out the PC motto, “While We Live, We Serve,” by spending time together in a service project. You’ll also spend time getting to know where everything is on campus and adventuring to off-campus social events too.

New Student Orientation is your time to learn about the different clubs, organizations, and extracurricular activities available on campus. It’s a great opportunity for you to meet new people and find activities you’re interested in.

As a PC student, you have access to resources such as tutoring, study groups, and advising. You’ll learn about these resources during NSO and will learn more about the expectations of being a student at PC. It’s important for you to know where to go for help if you need it.

More details to come!
