Start the school year off with a celebration. Orientation Day is our day to welcome you to the NIC community. Held at each campus, Orientation Day is your introduction to the people, places and resources on campus that will make your college experience a success.
New students will have the chance to find your classes, meet your instructors and visit the library and bookstore. Returning students can reconnect with classmates and instructors, buy course materials and find out what’s new at NIC.

I really enjoyed everything about Orientation Day. The entire morning was a fun and super positive experience. The delicious lunch that was provided and outdoor Marketplace was a great way to finish the day. I felt so much better after attending, having gained a better understanding about my new campus.
