New Student Institute


Counting down until you arrive at SNU! 

What to Expect at NSI

All new students (freshmen and transfers) participate in New Student Institute at Southern Nazarene University! Because this is a significant transition and deserves to be celebrated by all, families are invited to participate for the first two days as well. Be prepared for fun, informative, and meaningful events for students and their families. New Student Institute will help you feel at home, get connected with other students, settle in, and get ready for your first year at SNU!
*Family includes parents, siblings, and any other guests attending New Student Institute events to support their SNU student. NSI is optional for family.
