New Student Orientation

Future Gothic Knights, Welcome to NJCU!

Congratulations on your admission to NJCU! We are pleased that you have chosen to join the Gothic Knight family. New Student Orientation is designed to assist you and your family in making a smooth transition to college. Our goal is to help you succeed at NJCU.

New Student Orientation (NSO) is an important experience for all new students, regardless of academic affiliation or major. At NSO, you will have the opportunity to become familiar with campus resources and make connections with current students, faculty, and staff before beginning classes. Because we know that participation in NSO can make a significant difference in your experiences as an NJCU student, all new students are expected to attend.

The mission of the New Student Orientation Team is to welcome, prepare, and engage new students and their families in their transition to NJCU. We are dedicated to still providing you with an intentional and engaging experience. You will be able to learn about tools and resources available to you as an NJCU student, tips and strategies to best navigate the campus, and connect with other new students and student leaders. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email or call 201-200-3234. We can’t wait to have you with us!
