Welcome to Saint Leo University. Your Journey Begins Here!
Fall 2022 New Student Orientation (NSO) is designed to prepare incoming students for a smooth and successful transition into the Saint Leo community. NSO includes a variety of programs and events that will set students on the path toward academic and personal success at Saint Leo University. Students entering the University for Fall 2022 will participate in in-person activities. These experiences will acquaint students with our campus, support services, policies, faculty, and staff while allowing them to complete all Admitted Students Checklist items prior to the start of classes. NSO will also provide incoming students with the opportunity to build friendships before the semester. Please note that all incoming students (whether commuter, resident, first-time-in-college, or transfer) are highly encouraged to participate in as many components of New Student Orientation as possible.
Participating students and their families will learn about opportunities and responsibilities both in and out of the classroom. By exposing students to the key services and resources available to them, we hope to empower them to make well-informed decisions.
Please take a moment to review our helpful New Student Checklist to familiarize yourself with the various documents and tasks you will need to complete prior to your arrival here on campus for the semester.
