Welcome to Sonoma State University!

Orientation team leaders pose together

We are excited to have you as part of our Seawolf community!

~ ~ ~Announcement!! ~ ~ ~

For the FIRST TIME EVER, Noma Nation Orientation will host Seawolf Welcome Week!! (please see details on the following pages)

Noma Nation Orientation is required for all incoming students and is designed to assist you in making a successful transition to SSU. During your Noma Nation Orientation experience, you will learn about campus departments and resources, be advised about general education and major requirements, and learn important dates & deadlines. Noma Nation Orientation will also provide you an opportunity to experience the campus and meet fellow incoming students, faculty and staff.  

Noma Nation Orientation will be back to operating in person during Summer 2022 for Fall 2022 admitted students!  But, rest assured, we will still have virtual options that will provide you with everything you need to have a successful first year at SSU. 

We are glad that you have chosen SSU to continue your education and look forward to meeting you. Go Seawolves!
