Mandatory New Student Orientation

Fall 2015 NSO - August 20 through August 23

Regardless of your age or previous university experience, it is your first year at Adams State, and we want to assist you in making your transition as smooth as possible.

Starting your college career can be challenging for many reasons. To assist with some of the anxiety you may be feeling, as well as give you time to take care of all your campus business, we have created a Orientation program to help you transition to ASU smoothly:

This schedule is tentative - it may change over time:

  • Various activities are planned for students. Parents and family are urged to attend the activities as well. 
  • Adams State University would like to make the college experience family friendly because the family unit will be the greatest support system for students as they navigate through college.

  • New Student Orientation is a chance for students to become familiar with the college campus.
  • It is also an opportunity to explore opportunities outside the classroom by making connections with other students, faculty, and student affairs staff.
