New Student Orientation Program


The New Student Orientation Program (NSOP) is a large and exciting program to welcome all of our incoming first-year, transfer and international students to the Barnard community. New students arrive on campus approximately one week prior to classes, where they are introduced to all of the resources that are available to them during their time at Barnard. Not only do we plan and implement Barnard-specific programs, but we also host programs in conjunction with our Columbia constituents.
