Connect With Students

Let's get to know each other

In addition to getting ready for IU and learning how to be a Hoosier, NSO is also about making connections and forming relationships that will last four years—and even longer. During the program you will connect with other new Hoosiers, current IU students, and the IU community.

Throughout the summer, we’ll offer live programs and chats for you to learn directly from current students and staff about campus and the many opportunities available to you at IU. And yes, friendships will be made—it’s tough not to befriend another Hoosier.

Within Canvas, you’ll be added to your Cream & Crimson Community, a peer group with other new Hoosiers. Each group will be mentored by an OTeam member—a group of IU students here to help you throughout the NSO program and as you start your college career at IU.
