It's a Great Day to be a Seawolf!


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 is excited to be offering our Fall 2023. Noma Nation Orientation program will begin on Wednesday, August 16!  

Information for our Fall 2023 admitted first year and transfer students will be available soon. We are glad that you have chosen SSU to continue your education and look forward to meeting you. Go Seawolves!
