Undergraduate Orientation

Fall 2014 New Student Orientation

Multnomah University enthusiastically welcomes new undergraduate students to participate in New Student Orientation (NSO) Thursday, August 21 through Sunday, August 24, 2014.

The goal of the NSO experience is to provide new students with valuable connections and information as they begin their time at Multnomah. We place high importance on orientation because it is a great opportunity to become better acquainted with the people and policies at Multnomah University. For that reason, we ask that you make every effort to attend the full weekend of orientation.

Orientation is required for all new undergraduate students. Please *RSVP and let us know you will be attending.

Families of new students are welcome to participate in NSO events through Friday afternoon.  Please see the family schedule for events planned specifically with parents and families in mind: Parent Orientation Schedule.
