NSO Programs at SOU
NSO programs consists of academic sessions, social activities, and workshops. NSO fosters an emotional connection to the people, places, and ideas of the SOU community to inspire success. Within this community built at orientation, you will learn from staff, faculty, and current students the best practices for academic and personal success as you begin the journey toward graduation.
