New Student Orientation Begins

New Student Orientation (NSO) is a program hosted by Trent University to ease the transition to the university environment. In its third consecutive year, the program has been found to be beneficial to new students and their parents/guardians.

Beginning July 6 and running every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday until August 19, the New Student Orientation Program will bring new first-year students from across Ontario to Trent University to learn about course registration, campus life, Introductory Seminar Week and housing services. Students will also have the opportunity to tour the campus, residential colleges and learn about financial aid opportunities.

 "New Student Orientation is important because it alleviates some of the pressure on new students. They get an opportunity to make decisions about their first year in a relaxed and friendly environment. At the same time, flexibility is emphasized, as New Student Orientation provides students with the learning tools necessary to succeed,” says Graeme Parke, new student orientation coordinator.

The New Student Orientation Program is run by six upper-year Trent students who each offer a unique perspective to incoming students on Trent university life.

If there are any questions about the program, please feel free to contact the NSO staff at 748-1011 ext.5061 or at  Further information can be found at, including a schedule of the appointment day.
