Morton College will host a variety of New Student Orientation sessions to welcome our new students and ease their transition into college life. 

All recent high school graduates who are attending Morton College in the Fall are required to attend a New Student Orientation (NSO) session. 

This year Morton College, has revitalized the New Student Orientations by training current Morton College students, known as Student Leaders, to lead the orientations.

“The NSO committee comprised of a variety of student affairs areas such as Academic Advising, Office of Admissions and Records, Athletics and Student Activities are optimistic that current students will motivate and encourage our new incoming students to be successful on our campus and create strong mentor relationships,” said Marisol Velazquez, Director of Student Development.  

At the New Student Orientation, students will learn about Morton College and our resources, receive a campus tour and meet with an advisor. Additionally, they will attend a workshop to learn how to use the Panther Portal and register for classes. The last hour of every session, students will enjoy lunch with their new college friends and peer mentors. 

Orientation sessions are offered from now through August 19th during morning, afternoon and evening times to accommodate the needs of all of our students. New students attending NSO will feel welcomed by the Morton College community and be prepared to reach academic success.
