NODA's Extended Orientation Institute (EOI) is an opportunity for professionals and students to become educated on the trends and best practices within the field of extended orientation programming. 

Registration opens on September 5, 2017. 



The Extended Orientation Institute is an opportunity for professionals and students throughout the nation to become educated about trends and best practices while engaging in current research within the field of extended orientation programming. In addition, come to network with colleagues and students, spend time in the great state of Georgia, and further develop yourself as an expert in our field. With a blend of student and staff facilitated educational sessions, round-table discussions, and panel sessions, we know this institute has the potential to benefit many aspects of your program.

Whether you are new to extended orientation programming, a seasoned professional, or looking to create something new on your campus, we look forward to hosting you at The University of Georgia, home of Dawg Camp!

Travel Information: 

If you are traveling by plane, the most convenient airport to fly into is the Hartfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta, GA. If you are interested in a group shuttle service vs. renting a car, we recommend Groome Transportation which has at least 19 trips a day to and from the airport and drops off/picks up at the UGA Conference Center and Hotel which is located on campus. From there, representatives from Dawg Camp can bring you to your hotel!
