NSO Gold Fall


At Texas State, we are excited to welcome over 9,000 new Bobcats each year at New Student Orientation (NSO). 

We strongly encourage you to attend an NSO session as early as possible. Class availability is on a first-come, first-served basis, so there are definite advantages to attending an early session.
