Connect With Students

Find your home at IU

In addition to getting ready for IU and learning how to be a Hoosier, NSO is about making connections and forming relationships that will last four years—and even longer. Throughout the summer, we’ll offer a variety of virtual spaces and events where you can connect with other new Hoosiers, current IU students, and the IU community.

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

We also encourage you to join one—or all—of the NSO events below and build community before your first semester even starts!

 

Learn about the Faculty and Staff for Student Excellence (FASE) mentoring program and how mentoring can benefit your academic success, boost your professional development, and help you build community.
