Welcome to the TU family! All new students are required to participate in the Thomas University New Student Orientation (NSO) program. NSO is offered year-round in an online format to meet our students’ needs and schedules in addition to being offered as a campus-based program every fall term NSO provides vital information regarding the many important student features one gains as they become a Night Hawk. Some highlighted features are: using the Student Portal (Hawklink), understanding the Blackboard online learning sites that accompany all courses at TU, and review of the numerous Library resources available to Night Hawks on campus or as a distance student. In addition, NSO orients one to the TU Honor Code and our expectations for academic integrity, as well as orienting them to the academic support services and opportunities for student involvement here at TU.
NSO is designed to provide important information in a welcoming setting, either being from the comfort of your home or office, or here on campus prior to the start of the Fall semester. In the left navigation bar of this page you will find the link to the Online NSO video and quiz.
Please note participation in NSO is required.
Students are free, guests will have to pay $20 each. This will include a t-shirt, as well as dinner on Friday evening for all new students and paid guests attending.
Please feel free to contact the Office of Admissions for any additional information, or questions pertaining to NSO.
