Welcome, new Bengals! Congratulations on your acceptance to Idaho State University. We are excited that you are joining our ISU family!

We realize that the transition into a university comes with many questions. Our New Student Orientation programs are designed to uncover the answers to those questions and to provide you with campus programs and services to support your transition. By the end of NSO, you will be on your way to building a network of resources that will help on your journey to completing your degree.

New Student Orientation also provides new students with an opportunity to build peer connections with other Bengals through social activities, campus traditions, and orientation small groups. Our Orientation Leader team looks forward to meeting you!
