Welcome to #NanookNation!
We are so excited to have you join us during New Student Orientation. Don't know where your classes are? We've got you covered. Where's the food? Come with us, we'll show you! Can I work a student job or climb an ice wall or get funding for research? TOTALLY!
New student orientation and parent and family orientation will return to normal, in-person activities and sessions, and we’re planning ways for the event to be as accessible for online students as possible.
