Extended Orientation Network
Share |

The purpose of the Extended Orientation (EO) Network is to identify and address the unique needs of NODA members working with programs that supplement traditional new student orientation, providing an extension to the orientation, transition, and retention process. This network focuses on any program outside of the traditional new student orientation including, but not limited to, spirit/tradition camps, outdoor orientations, welcome weeks, and experiential orientation programs. The network will provide opportunities for networking, support, and sharing of information on needs, issues, and trends unique to extended orientation programs.
