NVU Orientation and More

Events for New Northern Vermont University Students

Classes don’t start until late August, but there will be a number of opportunities for new Northern Vermont University students to get oriented, meet other new students, make connections with staff, faculty, and current students, and prepare to start off the school year on the right foot. All new students on both campuses are required to attend our Summer Orientation and Resources (SOAR) events and Fall Orientation Weekend. New qualifying students at Johnson and Lyndon may be eligible to participate in our Summer Bridge program.
