 Summer New Student Orientation Links for:

All new day undergraduate students joining the Philadelphia university community take part in one of several New Student Orientation programs offered throughout the summer months. The program is offered to get students off to a fresh start as they begin the next phase of their lives. Commuter and resident students attend a two-day program and spend one night on campus. NSO is designed to be a supportive and informative introduction to the university, its programs, and its community.


We provide an opportunity for students and families to participate in the NSO program to help make the transition to Philadelphia University as seamless as possible. Open space at each program is limited so reservations are on a first-come-first-served basis. Students and families should complete the online reservation process as soon as possible to help ensure attendence at the most convenient session for them.
