New Student Orientation (NSO) promises to be fun-filled and information-packed! NSO is the first step to ensuring a successful academic and social transition to Methodist University. New students will have the opportunity to move into their residence hall, meet fellow classmates and meet with their academic advisor for the first time. You must pay your enrollment deposit to participate in the orientation activities, get a course schedule and get a housing assignment. All new residential students (including residential transfer students) and commuting freshman are expected to participate in all NSO activities. Parents are invited to participate in NSO activities. Housing will not be provided for Parents (click here for suggested hotels).
