Congratulations on your acceptance to the "Unsinkable" Albany State University (ASU) Golden Rams Family!  We are working diligently to prepare for your arrival to campus. It is my pleasure to provide you with information regarding the New Student Orientation Program (NSOP).
 
The first step in making your experience at ASU a rewarding one is to participate in New Student Orientation to assist with your transition to ASU. NSOP is designed to prepare students for their first year at Albany State University. You will learn important information about the university and all of the services in place to promote your academic success.
