Congratulations, new Dragons. To start off your journey at DigiPen on the right foot, we’d 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’ve been working diligently over these past few months to create a New Student Orientation experience that fully immerses you in DigiPen while ensuring the health and wellness of all of our students, staff, and faculty.

Online New Student Orientation

Beginning August 17, you 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.

Welcome Week

From August 24-28, we’ll be hosting both on-campus and virtual Welcome Week events that will include opportunities to connect with faculty and current students. You’ll have a chance to participate in campus tours, meet Program Directors, pick up your DigiPen student badge, and more! Check here again in mid-August when we will be posting the full Welcome Week event calendar.

Virtual Orientation Leaders

During New Student Orientation, current DigiPen students will serve as your Orientation Leaders (OLs). In mid-August, you will be invited to connect directly with your assigned OL and other incoming DigiPen students through a live, online meeting platform. These student leaders are here to guide you through New Student Orientation, answer any questions you have, and share information that will be valuable during your time at DigiPen.

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