What to Expect at NSI

It’s almost time to make your first appearance on the campus of SNU. It is very important to us that your first days on our campus are special ones. We want to welcome you, help you get to know other new students, and help you get to know the many great people that are part of the SNU family.

New Student Institute (NSI) is a required orientation for all new students arriving in January for our spring semester.
