New Student Orientation (NSO)

Come get to know campus! NSO activities range from spiritual and academic, to the informal and out-and-out fun that is always a fantastic part of campus life. Many of these events are organized around Y Groups, small groups led by upperclassmen where you can ask questions and get to know other new students.

If you really want to get the best experience you can out of BYU, you have to participate in the amazing events they put on. NSO is the greatest way to start!
