New Student Orientation (NSO) is where you begin your life as a Leatherneck at WIU-QC! Whether you are a first-year or a transfer, undergraduate, or graduate student, NSO will be an exciting experience where you can get ready for both your in-class and out of classroom experiences, meet current students, staff, and faculty, and begin friendships with other new students.
