Counting down until you arrive at SNU! 


What to Expect at NSI

It’s almost time to make your first appearance on the campus of SNU. It is very important to us that your first days on our campus are special ones. We want to welcome you, help you get to know other new students, and help you get to know the many great people that are part of the SNU community.

New Student Institute (NSI) is a required orientation for all new freshman and transfer students under the age of 24. Students aged 24 and older have an abbreviated schedule you can find at the links below.

1. New On Campus Student Check-In is Saturday, August 12 at 8 am. All new students living on campus will check in at their residence hall and then complete New Student Institute Registration. If you are a fall sport athlete or marching band member, you will receive communication regarding your move-in date from an SNU Coach or Advisor. All new students (residential and commuter) participate in New Student Institute.

2. Commuter students will check in for New Student Institute in front of the Webster Commons between 9 am and 12 pm on Saturday, August 12th.
