New Student Orientation (NSO) at ASU-Beebe is a 3-hour program aimed at providing you, and your family, with an introduction to life on campus, a snapshot of the college classroom environment, and an opportunity to finalize all your student account details (i.e., financial aid, class registration, etc.). All new students are strongly encouraged to attend NSO. A companion program for parents and families is available for family members traveling to ASU-Beebe with you for NSO. Tickets are required due to limited capacity.
These sessions are open to any new student taking classes on our four campuses. *Evening Events
Students are limited to two (2) Family Members/Support Persons to accompany them to in-person New Student Orientation.
New Student Orientation is designed to connect you to fellow students, campus life, and college traditions.
