NODA is committed to providing cost-effective external review services for both members and nonmembers alike. Our 40+ years as an association and diverse professional interest combine to offer expertise in new freshman, transfer student, and family orientations; student leader selection, training and development; parent programs; and retention.   

An effective orientation program:

✓ Focuses on creating an experience for new students

Should introduce all students to the educational and extracurricular experiences while providing intentional opportunities to meet and interact with other students, faculty, and staff

Integrate students into the intellectual, cultural, and social climate of the instittion

Minimize families' anxiety by providing information and support

Demonstrate how the institution will deliver on the promises that were made during the recruitment phase

Draw from units all over campus to provide information on policies, procedures, and requirements to assist students and families in understanding the purpose of the institution and their responsibilities in the educational experience
