Every year, thousands of new students begin their journey at CSUN as transfer students, international students and incoming freshmen. These incoming students take an extensive tour of campus, attend a resource fair and make new friends over lunch. Each session wraps up around noon, after the incoming students have recorded their names for future pronunciation reference and attended TAKE, an assembly showing all the challenges they might face as college students and how to handle them.

New Student Orientation kicked off July 31 and will continue throughout August. For more information, visit the NSO website.
