Welcome to NLU! We are glad you're here.
Getting ready to continue your education is a very exciting time. Reduce your stress by preparing for classes at NLU. We provide several orientation options that will help you get started on the right track, with the tools you need to be successful.
All students will be enrolled in NLU 101. Our online orientation is added to every new student's Desire 2 Learn (D2L) account prior to the start of classes. This is an interactive course that provides students with the opportunity to learn about NLU, online tools, and learn how to use the online campus. All courses utilize this program even if it's a course that occurs on campus.
New Student Activities will be held on the Chicago campus Saturday, September 13th from 9am-2pm. The agenda for Saturday, 9/13 is as follows:
