NATCHITOCHES, La. – Northwestern State University’s fourth session of Freshman Connection will be held online, according to Vanner Erikson, director of First-Year Experience and Leadership Development.

“After Gov. John Bel Edwards’ order to remain in Phase 2 for the next 28 days, we have made the decision to move Session 4 of Freshman Connection to a virtual format,” Erikson said. “There is no need to come to the NSU campus. We will soon begin the process of advising, registering and completing all Freshman Connection business virtually.”

Freshman Orientation will be Thursday, July 9. Incoming students will be placed in small groups with orientation leaders and can connect with future classmates. In addition to registering for the fall semester, participants will be introduced to NSU student services and involvement opportunities and will be paired with a Demon Success Coach that will connect them with an academic advisor who can help with academics and schedule.

Freshmen will receive more detailed emails in the next few days from your newly assigned Success Coach, so incoming students should monitor their emails for incoming information, Erikson added.

NSU held three previous sessions of Freshman Connection online with great success.

“We received lots of positive feedback from our first three sessions of Freshman Connection,” Erikson said. “Although it is a bit different, the sessions included a lot of good discussion and exchange of information

NATCHITOCHES – Northwestern State University’s Office of First Year Experience is planning to transition the first two sessions of Freshman Connection to an online format.  The NSU leadership will continue to monitor the COVID -19 situation to determine the course of all other sessions of orientation.  Students will be notified via email of all changes.

“Freshman Connection is an opportunity for incoming students to meet people who will help make the transition to college a successful one.  That won’t change,” said Van Erikson, director of First Year Experience and Leadership Development.  “The Class of 2024 will still be able to meet people, visit with their academic advisors, learn about the resources available and how to be a successful first-year Demon.

Incoming students will be able to participate in a series of engaging virtual small group sessions where they will meet classmates and get questions answered. Academic advising and registration will be designed with each student’s individual goals in mind. By the end of Freshman Connection, participants will be ready for the fall semester.

Dates for virtual Freshman Connection are May 21-22 and May 28-29.  Dates for Freshman Connection on the Natchitoches campus, which is subject to change, are June 17-18 and July 9.  Additional sessions are planned for the Alexandria campus on Tuesday, June 23, at the Shreveport campus on Thursday, June 24 and at the Leesville campus on Tuesday, June 30. All are subject to change, Erikson said, and more information is forthcoming.

The orientation and first-year transition fee will be used in the same manner as always – to develop and implement the orientation program and to create Demon Days Welcome in the fall, Erikson said.  Students already registered for Freshman Connection should be checking emails for information and announcements regarding Freshman Connection.

“Our traditional Demon Days Welcome will now incorporate expanded opportunities for our new students with their success in mind,” Erikson said.  “And we’re looking forward to welcoming you to campus a little earlier in the fall.”

Incoming freshman can also sign up at www.nsula.edu/fye/freshmanconnection.  Sessions are filling up quickly, Erikson said.

This summer Northwestern State University welcomed over 1,000 new students to their campus during Freshman Connection. Here students had the opportunity to learn about campus resources, connect with fellow peers and upperclassman, browse different campus organizations and schedule their classes.

Brady Mathis, a recent graduate of Haughton High School who attended Freshman Connection said, “I loved how at Freshman Connection everyone was there to help. No matter what it was, the connectors were there to help.”

Brooklyn McGhee, an incoming freshman and graduate of Leesville High School, said that attending Freshman Connection and getting to create her schedule, “set {her} realization that it’s all happening, and these are the people I will spend the next four years with.”

Freshman Connection is a tradition that dates back to 1984. Freshman Connectors are upperclassmen that are selected through a rigorous process and lead new students through the tradition from high school to college as both a mentor and a friend.

This summer students had the choice to attend one of four sessions, in person, throughout the months of May, June, and July.
