NSO Peer Leaders

New Student Orientation is designed to help you connect with the NJIT community - and is led by its most important resource: our students. We call our orientation leaders "NSO Peer Leaders." Peer Leaders are selected from our top student leaders. All of them excel academically and are involved within the NJIT community. Your NSO Peer Leaders are here to support you - feel free to contact them throughout the summer with any questions.
