New Student Orientation

Saturday, August 17 – Tuesday, August 20, 2019

We are excited to welcome you to our community. Whether you are leaving home for the first time, commuting from a short distance away or transferring from another university, this experience can be exciting and challenging. The orientation program is an important start to your journey as a new student at Earlham College.

Over the course of four days, you will be introduced to life on campus. We have worked hard to design an orientation program that allows you to make friends and have fun while preparing you for academic engagement and success. New Student Orientation (NSO) will help facilitate your transition into college life as well as the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead—intellectually, emotionally, academically and socially.

We invite you to take advantage of the many resources, programs and leadership development opportunities our office provides, and truly immerse yourself in campus life to make the most of your college experience here at EC.

The first step to preparing for New Student Orientation (NSO) is registering. Students can register for the program by visiting the Countdown to Earlham webpage.

The New Student Orientation Office is here to support your transition and answer any questions you have as orientation approaches and beyond.

As you prepare for your arrival, make sure to check your Earlham email and the Countdown to Earlham page for important updates and reminders.

If you have any question, please do not hesitate to contact us via email at NSO@earlham.edu or at 765-983-1875.
