New Student Orientation Information

The New Student Orientation (NSO) begins on Thursday, the week before classes officially start at Marquette University and runs through the following Wednesday when the Marquette University freshman orientation begins. Attendance at New Student Orientation is not mandatory, but is highly encouraged for all incoming freshmen. Although the training will be conducted at Naval Station Great Lakes, new Midshipmen will report to the unit at Marquette University for in processing. The address for the unit is 1532 West Clybourn St. Milwaukee, WI 53233. For a campus map, see the link near the top of the page. If you get lost or have any problems while traveling call (414) 288-6032. You should arrive in appropriate civilian clothing. Males: a collared shirt, khakis or slacks with belt, and dress shoes. Females: a blouse and trousers/slacks with dress shoes; no high heels.

NSO is challenging, but is not the equivalent to boot camp. It is not graded and you cannot fail. It will give you the opportunity to meet the staff and your Midshipman peers, many of whom you will work with throughout your Navy or Marine Corps career. It is also an invaluable tool for learning the basics of being a Midshipman.


Many parents drive their students to NSO. We encourage parents to accompany their children so they may attend the presentation from the staff. They will be available afterward to answer any questions that parents may have. Refreshments and snacks will also be provided at this event.

The Completion Ceremony will be on 26 August 2015 at 1000 at the Marquette University Unit. Parents are encouraged to attend this as well and witness the transformation their sons or daughters experienced during NSO.
