New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation (NSO) provides an opportunity for other midshipmen in leadership positions to teach (under the guidance and supervision of the unit staff) the importance of camaraderie, teamwork and self-discipline. This period of instruction focuses on military orientation including drill, uniform wear, core values, customs and courtesies, chain of command, and inspections. Professional training on Naval operations, service selection, drug and alcohol policies, and equal opportunity/sexual harassment policies helps to create the framework upon which four more years of professional training will be built.
