New Student Orientation (NSO) is our first contact with prospective cadets, who have already registered for AS101 and AS101L, and a chance for you and your families to learn about our program and get oriented to cadet life.  NSO will open with a general information briefing for students and parents, then we’ll progress into a full day of Formal Cadet Intake. Student attendees will spend the next few hours with upper level cadets learning about the program and being taught basic skills for success. Please see our full schedule below as well as a list of actions and documents we’ll need for a smooth in-processing.
