A focus on student learning.
Every element of New Student Orientation is guided by our learning constructs. These constructs explain what each Ole ultimately takes away from their NSO experience and help us know that our orientation experience works.
Acquisition of Knowledge
The success of New Student Orientation can be tied to how students acquire, retain, and implement knowledge, contributing to increased self-efficacy and confidence.
Navigation of Campus
An Ole’s ability to navigate campus, both physically and digitally, is critical to their success. Confidence in where resources are located as well as how to access them are key elements of New Student Orientation.
Sense of Belonging
Feeling connected to people and to a place are paramount in an Ole’s transition to campus. Demonstrated relationships with peers and generalized feelings of support are often critical in fostering success and belonging.
The learning outcomes for New Student Orientation stem from our values as a St. Olaf community. Grouped into three focus areas, our learning outcomes describe what we are hoping you take away from this experience as the starting point from which to continue to build the knowledge and tools needed to be successful in and out of the classroom!
