Peer Leadership Application

In accordance with the state and institution’s guidelines during this time, Buff Nation: A Buff Branding and Orientation Event will be moved to a virtual format this year. Students who are not yet registered for NSO need to go ahead and register to attend the August Option. We will be communicating next steps to students registered for orientation. As a reminder, Orientation is still required for all incoming students.
