Here is a sample of some of the sessions that you’ll attend during NSO:

  • An opportunity to explore your designated campus.
  • Advising and academic success sessions.
  • Discussions about Dolphin pride, campus safety and Title IX.
  • Information about getting involved and engaged in the Student Life experience.

Additional information about our expectations for you as a new COA student will be woven throughout the day, such as what to expect on your first day of class, academic integrity and personal responsibility.
