Orientation & University Events

ThunderWolf Welcome New Student Orientation (NSO), in collaboration with the Division of Student Affairs, creates an inclusive and welcoming environment for incoming students, providing opportunities for a successful transition into the CSU Pueblo campus community. Thunderwolf Welcome NSO introduces new students to the curricular and co-curricular expectations of CSU Pueblo and the resources they will need for successful completion of their degree.

New Student Orientation (NSO) also develops student leaders who participate by becoming NSO Orientation Leaders. Participating students learn to work with incoming students, while also learning new skills and working collaboratively with other student leaders. If you are interested in becoming a New Student Orientation Leader, you can visit the Student Engagement and Leadership office in OSC 102.

New Student Convocation

From the Latin convocation meaning “to call/come together”, New Student Convocation assembles the university’s campus community to celebrate the beginning of incoming students’ collegiate and academic journey here at CSU Pueblo.

At this ceremony, new students receive their "Pack On" t-shirts and learn the CSU Pueblo Fight Song with their fellow classmates. New students are also welcomed by university administrators who will participate in and lead the students through the Academic Pledge and pinning ceremony. Family members and friends are encouraged to attend. No tickets are required.
