Congratulations, new Dragons. To start your journey at DigiPen on the right foot, we would like to invite you to New Student Orientation (NSO). During NSO, you will have an opportunity to meet both new and current students, hear from your program directors and faculty, and receive some useful tips that every new student should know.

We are working diligently over the next few months to create a New Student Orientation experience that fully immerses you in DigiPen while ensuring the health and wellness of all our students, staff, and faculty.

There will be lots to do, so please keep referring to this page regularly, as we will be making updates to the schedule and information.

Meeting Your Orientation Leaders

During New Student Orientation, current DigiPen students will serve as your Orientation Leaders (OLs). OLs will reach out to you in early August to introduce themselves and mail you your DigiPen Cohort Scale! You’ll be invited to connect with your OLs and other incoming DigiPen students through a live, online meeting platform. These student leaders are here to guide you through NSO, answer any questions, and share information that will be valuable during your time at DigiPen.

Online New Student Orientation

Beginning in mid-August, students will get access to a self-paced online orientation. This required web content will give you an overview of the DigiPen student experience and details about campus support services.

On-Campus New Student Orientation

On August 22-26, 2022, we will be hosting on-campus events that will include opportunities for you to receive your DigiPen badge, get a campus tour, and connect with your incoming cohort members. Attendance during this week is required, so please mark your calendars!

DigiPen is committed to providing equal access to its programs and events. To request disability accommodations for this event, contact Student Life in advance at studentlife[at]digipen[dot]edu. Please contact us as soon as possible. Advance notice is necessary to arrange for some accessibility needs.

If you have any additional questions, please contact the Office of Student Life at studentlife[at]digipen[dot]edu.
