New Student Orientation (NSO) Activities

During the first week of September, UPEI, the Student Union, and Residence Services organize fun and exciting activities for new students to UPEI Residence. All activities are designed to help students learn more about their residence, the university, and one another. Throughout the week, various presentations on campus life and fun activities are offered to introduce students to UPEI. NSO is a great way to meet other students and have a lot of fun while doing so! While everyone is encouraged to participate, all NSO events are strictly voluntary. Information on NSO can be obtained by visiting the NSO website, or by emailing Information on events will also be provided at registration.
