2016 Spring NSI at SNU


Spring New Student Institute (NSI) is a REQUIRED orientation program to welcome incoming students, 23 years old and younger. We’ve been working hard to plan fun, informative, and meaningful events for our new students. Each student will connect with upperclassmen, faculty, staff, and other peers in a family group setting enabling new friendships within the student body.

New Student Institute, which begins January 6th-8th, 2020 will help you feel welcome, get settled in, and get ready for your first semester as a student at SNU.

*Students over the age of 23 have the option of participating.  Please just contact if you choose to participate and you are over the age of 23.

During NSI there will be faculty and student mentors who want to guide you as you take those steps through the many open doors that lie ahead of you at this place.  They will share with you, from experience, the crucial keys to making the most of your endeavors at SNU.  You’ll be amazed how those relationships and the knowledge they offer will build many gateways to success during your years at SNU.  We are already praying for you as those doors open to reveal a new adventure filled with exciting possibilities!

The NSI Office is located on the first floor of the SNU Library in the Center for Student Success. You can also contact our office by phone or e-mail.
