Oregon State NROTC conducts New Student Orientation (NSO) during Welcome Week for all new midshipmen, including those who attended NSI. The purpose of NSO is to orient midshipmen to Oregon State University NROTC and help them get off to a strong start in school. Midshipmen should expect to get to know their classmates, receive instruction on unit policies and regulations, undergo urinalysis, complete paperwork required for scholarship activation, and attend seminars on academic success and time management. College Program midshipmen, who were not able to attend NSI, will receive uniforms and instruction on Navy and Marine Corps uniform regulations and grooming standards. Time permitting, basic training on military drill and ceremony will also be conducted.
