New Student Orientation

Future students on an MSU New Student Orientation tour.

Our academic advisors look forward to meeting each one of you at New Student Orientation (NSO)! There, you will be able to meet with us individually to address your immediate concerns and resolve many issues on the spot. In addition to helping formulate your first year of classes, our professional staff will also give an overview of the College of Engineering -- including the many services and opportunities you will find as a Spartan Engineering student.

For most of you, NSO will be the first of many ongoing meetings with your academic advisor. You will begin the process of working together with us to set goals for your academic, professional and personal life. It is our belief that the College of Engineering and Michigan State University will change your life for the better if you set strong goals and strive to achieve them. You are in charge of this process, and we are here to encourage you in whatever way we can.

The MSU New Student Orientation website provides more information to help you get ready for orientation.
