New Student Orientation

Welcome New Students!

Welcome to Lincoln University! You have embarked on an academic adventure that will positively transform your life. Your journey will begin during New Student Orientation (NSO) 2022.    

NSO creates an atmosphere that welcomes you to your new home away from home. NSO also minimizes separation anxieties, promotes positive attributes, and stimulates excitement for learning with a great focus on establishing a sense of belonging.  In addition, your new student orientation week is designed to help with a successful transition to University life. You will be first semester ready!  

What makes Lincoln University’s NSO unique? It is our emphasizes on liberal arts education, high-impact educational practices, the appropriate use of assessment placement, nurturing academic advisement and course selection.  

Your daily orientation seminars will include sessions on the purpose of a liberal arts education, essential skills and success, an introduction to the University’s institutional learning outcomes (ILOs), and campus community values. 

NSO 2022 is scheduled to take place from Sunday, August 14, 2022, through Saturday, August 21, 2022.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at

Your fellow Lion Family looks forward to meeting you very soon!
