Welcome to New Student Orientation website! New Student Orientation, or NSO, is designed to be an introduction into the Air Force ROTC program. It is a three day experience with a strong emphasis on college student-life, Air Force cadet-life, teamwork, and professionalism. Everything in NSO is meant to help set you up for success during your college and Air Force ROTC careers.  It is an EXCELLENT opportunity to build friendships with your future classmates while learning the basics of Air Force Drill and Ceremonies, military bearing and discipline, all the while taking your first steps to building a cohesive group of peers that you will be with for years to come!

A pivotal part of your NSO experience will be the Air Force Core Values: “Integrity First”, “Service Before Self”, and “Excellence In All We Do”. Throughout NSO, the professional and experienced training staff will demonstrate the Core Values, model the qualities of an Air Force officer candidate, and be the instructors of the NSO curriculum.
The New Student Orientation 2014 staff is highly motivated and dedicated to providing the fundamentals necessary for your success as a Cadet in the Air Force ROTC program, and as a student at your college. Sign up today!
